Kyiv (IP) - The Iranian ambassador to Ukraine described the Islamic Republic's policy as opposing the war and the need to end it through diplomacy.

Iran PressEurope: Manouchehr Moradi tweeted: "Opposition to the Ukraine war and the need to end it as soon as possible through diplomacy is one of the main priorities of the Islamic Republic's foreign policy."

Russia launched a military attack on neighboring Ukraine on February 24 to what Moscow called “de-Nazify” the country.

However, some believe Kyiv’s reproaching of the U.S.-led NATO alliance was the chief reason for the attack.   

Russia sent troops into Ukraine in February after Washington and NATO ignored Moscow’s demands for security guarantees over the Western military alliance’s eastward expansion into Ukraine.

Iran has repeatedly stated its opposition to continuing the war, but at the same time, the Islamic Republic believes that NATO should give up its provocations in the Balkans.

In the fourth telephone conversation between the Foreign Ministers of Iran and Ukraine since February 2022, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian reiterated Iran's principled stance to stop the war and reaffirmed Tehran's readiness to contribute to the establishment of peace and tranquility in Ukraine.
