Commander Highlights Iran's Growing Might, Enemies' Weakness
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian commander underlined the country's military might in the face of foreign threats, saying that the ever-increasing power has been achieved thanks to the steadfastness of the brave Iranian nation.
"Every day, we are witnessing the growing power of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Establishment," IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said in a speech in the southern province of Bushehr on Thursday.
He stressed that the enemies of Iran, however, are in a passive and weak position and well aware of the country’s might.
The great achievement has its roots in the power and the braveries of the Islamic Republic’s martyrs, the commander stated.
Rear Admiral Fadavi further touched upon Iran’s deterrence capabilities, saying that 26 years after the end of the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988), the Islamic Republic’s deterrence power is at such a high level that no one is capable of challenging the country.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
