According to him, Iran is also looking to buy attack helicopters, radars, and combat trainer aircraft. Iran wants to buy “billions of dollars’ worth” of military hardware from Russia.

Kirby refused to say more when asked about the type of fighter jets or when they might be delivered.

Kirby stated, “That’s as far as I’m going to be allowed here.” We’ll be keeping a careful eye on this to see what, if anything, actually happens.

He said a more robust military partnership between the two countries could make it harder for the West to help in Ukraine and elsewhere.

In addition to making things more complicated in Ukraine, he said, “it could also make it harder for our allies and friends in the Middle East to keep things safe.”

The United States imposed sanctions on Iran last year after allegations that it was supplying drones and surface-to-surface missiles to Russia or was planning to do so.

Senior Biden administration officials claimed in December that Moscow was giving Tehran “unprecedented” military and technical help in exchange for weapons. Sources said this spring that Iranian pilots were taught how to fly a Russian fighter jet in Moscow. Iran “may start buying the planes within the next year.”
