The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak, has confirmed this Wednesday that the Department of Business and Commerce is investigating allegations about a possible collaboration between British scientists from reputable universities, such as Cambridge, and Iranian experts for the development of kamikaze drones from Iran. .
The Conservative deputy David Davis has asked Sunak this Wednesday in the House of Lords about the recent complaints and has asked him to “take action on the matter”, to which the ‘premier’ has confirmed that there is already an investigation underway , as reported by the newspaper ‘The Telegraph’.
This comes after the Jewish weekly ‘The Jewish Chronicle’ published an article claiming that academics from more than a dozen British universities, including Cambridge and the Imperial University of London, were working with their Iranian counterparts to improve the capabilities of Iranian drones.
The aforementioned medium also alluded to the fact that the development of technology, with the help of British universities, could have helped to spread violence both in the Middle East and in Ukraine.
Despite the fact that numerous Western countries, including the United Kingdom, have imposed export restrictions and harsh sanctions to prevent Iran from obtaining the necessary materials for its drones, Tehran seems to have found the necessary intricacies to obtain a significant amount of technology to continue developing its arms industry.
