– Our drones are known for their high quality, so they will be an ideal item to export to your country. Which manufacturer will refuse another buyer, especially an entire country? If our states conclude a contract with each other, we will be very happy.
– Many Iranians are happy to establish relations with your country. Together, Iran and Russia are a much bigger force. That is why the Iranian people are very enthusiastic about the idea of supplying our drones to Russia.
– Of course, this also cannot be ignored. True, to be honest, we believe that the United States hit Iran much more painfully than Russia. You have not been banned from exporting your most important resources, but our situation is much more difficult.
Earlier, the media reported that Russia ordered a thousand drones from Iran.
