Iran maintains a principled position regarding the territorial integrity of Ukraine and stresses the need to comply with international norms, Iranian Ambassador to Ukraine Manouchehr Moradi has said in an interview with Ukrinform.

"Despite the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran has very close relations with Russia and that we have been neighbors for hundreds of years, Iran maintains its principled position on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, including on the territorial integrity of Ukraine… From the very beginning of this crisis, we have taken a clear position that the contradictions between Russia and Ukraine must be resolved within the framework of international laws and norms on a bilateral basis. In the matter of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, we emphasize the need to comply with international norms, and this was announced as our official position. This is a formulation that is perceived at the international level without our interference in certain nuances of the positions and claims of the parties," the diplomat said.

He noted that Iran's position on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine was "principled and consistent with international rules and norms."

When asked what he thinks about the persecution of Crimean Tatars by Russia in the occupied Crimea on religious grounds, the Iranian ambassador stressed that he did not have complete information on this issue. "To announce my point of view, I need to study this issue more," Moradi said.
