Iran wants to downplay reports that it could provide Russia with drones, as they don't want to anger Ukraine. A series of moves by Iran indicate an attempt to downplay the US accusations that it could be sending armed drones to Moscow.

The US made the accusations on the eve of US President Joe Biden’s trip to the Middle East, and Iranian drones have been used to threaten US forces, Israel and Saudi Arabia, among other countries and groups. Biden visited Israel and Saudi Arabia during the trip.

Iran is seeking to downplay reports that it is going to provide Russia with drones, according to a Friday report by Fars News. Iran has not provided much response since US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Iran could provide Russia with hundreds of drones last week.
