Swiss Ministry of Economic Affairs denies reports of drone parts being supplied to Iran
Switzerland has not directly supplied Iran with any parts for drone production, but Tehran could theoretically buy them on the world market, Fabian Mayenfisch, spokesman for the Swiss State Secretariat for Economy (SECO), told RIA Novosti.
Media earlier wrote that Iran’s Shahed-136 drone allegedly has 52 foreign-made parts, including those from the US and Switzerland.
“No such commercial industrial goods were supplied from Switzerland to Iran. Exports from Switzerland are prohibited by sanctions. As a rule, these goods are produced in third countries and distributed around the world. Therefore, one has to assume that these goods were purchased by Iran on the world market,” Mayenfisch said when asked by RIA Novosti.
Switzerland earlier joined EU sanctions against four individuals and four companies from Iran over Iran’s “military support for Russia and deliveries of drones to Russia.” Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian earlier said Tehran had supplied Russia with drones, but months before the special operation in Ukraine. The Kremlin noted that it had no data on the Iranian weapons.
