Russia conducting drone training in Iran - report

The United States intelligence claimed that Moscow has been conducting training on drones in Iran over the past several weeks, reported CNN, citing an unnamed US official.

"During the last several weeks, Russian officials conducted training in Iran as part of the agreement for UAV transfers from Iran to Russia," the official noted.

Previously, Washington accused Tehran of planning to send "up to several hundred" drones to Moscow, while adding that it will impose sanctions on Iran should the country proceed with the plan. Moreover, US officials raised concerns over Russia deepening its cooperation with Iran, as this could be seen as a "profound threat."
