“Sounds like an ultimatum. This is called the EU diplomacy nowadays. Brussels doesn’t understand that such language doesn’t work with the authorities of Iran,” Mikhail Ulyanov tweeted on Monday in reaction to Borrell’s anti-Tehran comment.
Referring to his telephone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, Borrell repeated baseless accusations against Tehran.
This comes as Iran and Russia have always rejected unfounded allegations leveled by Europeans that Tehran supplied Moscow with assistance in the war in Ukraine.
