Ministers from European Union countries will discuss potential future sanctions on Iran over its supply of suicide drones to Russia. According to the Reuters news agency, two unnamed diplomats said the matter would be debated on Monday at a ministerial meeting in Luxembourg. Russia began using the Iranian-made Shahed-136 drone last month to carry out deadly strikes in Ukraine.

Moscow has reportedly received delivery of hundreds of units from Tehran, despite Washington warning the Iranians against exporting the weapon. The diplomats told the news agency that after an analysis of the recent drone activity, it was decided to add the issue to the agenda of the ministerial meeting.

Heavens to Betsy, we can't sanction Iran! We're trying to recreate a nuclear deal with them. What will Ole Joe say?
