Iran has allegedly supplied Moscow with weapons over the past few months, starting with the delivery of Shahed-136 Kamikaze drones. Tehran has repeatedly denied that it has supplied any weapons to Russia, stating that it “does not and will not supply them”.

Barnea also joined Prime Minister-elect Benjamin Netanyahu’s criticism of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, as an “absurd” agreement.

“We are warning about Iran’s intention to expand its uranium enrichment program and increase its influence on friendly Muslim countries in the region in various ways,” Barnea said.
