US threatens sanctions if Iran supplies Russia with drones

The United States will impose sanctions against Iran if the country proceeds with its alleged plan to sell drones to Russia to be used in Ukraine, State Department Spokesperson Ned Price announced.

"Any transaction of this sort would implicate a number of sanctions that we have on the books and presumably a number of sanctions that countries around the world have on the books," the official said in a press briefing, condemning the "brutal, premeditated and unprovoked" conflict in Ukraine.

The move is the latest of Washington's warnings which comes after the White House informed the public about receiving intel that Russian officials visited an airfield in central Iran to look at weapons-capable drones.
