TEHRAN, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani has denied that Iran has delivered drones to Russia for use in the Ukraine conflict, the Foreign Ministry website reported on Tuesday.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran considers news published on the delivery of (Iran's) drones to Russia for use in the Ukraine conflict as baseless and does not confirm it," Kanaani was quoted as saying.
"Since the beginning of the (Ukraine) conflict, we have always announced our principled and clear policy on active impartiality and opposition to war, underlining the necessity of a political resolution to disputes between the two sides, and away from violence," he said.
Besides, Iran has always reiterated the need for resolving the differences in a peaceful manner through dialogue, he stressed. ■
