Commander: States Keen to Use Iran’s Experiences in Flight Security
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Thursday many countries are asking Iran to share its experiences in flight security measures, and added the IRGC's Aviation Security Force has a brilliant record in the field.
“Many of the Islamic and friendly countries have asked for the transfer of our experiences and we are planning to do so,” Jafari said today.
He noted that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which supervises the security of airliners and the flight security around the globe, has confirmed the measures adopted by the Islamic Republic for the purpose and recognizes Iran as one of the successful countries in this regard.
The commander lauded the performance of the IRGC officers in charge of ensuring flight security, and said they have successfully defused more than 130 sabotage plots or operations to hijack planes in the domestic and international flights during the last three decades.
On Wednesday, too, a senior security commander at the IRGC said the force has registered a successful record in ensuring security for airliners in domestic and international flights.
Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Security Operations Force General Mohammad Hassan Kazemi told reporters that his forces have performed successfully their missions to ensure security in domestic and international flights.
“Given the record, we now enjoy a safe and secure atmosphere in the aviation industry in a way that our aviation industry enjoys the safest flights (in the world)," he underlined.
"We don't have (flight) security concerns,” Kazemi added.
