Putin’s Reminder To New Iran President: Will ‘Pro-West’ Pezeshkian End Shahed Drone Sale To Russia?

Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to be attempting to court Iran’s new president Massoud Pezeshkian. Moscow appears to be apprehensive that the moderate and seemingly “pro-West” leader’s victory in the election marks a potential shift in the relationship. Since the start of the Ukraine war over two years ago, Iran has been accused of supplying key weapons to Russia, including the deadly Shahed drone. Now, questions are being raised about whether this arrangement will continue under the leadership of Iran’s new president.
