He also referred to "prepared armed forces" as one of the factors that putting Iran at the pinnacle of power, readiness and security.

Back in April, Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi had also emphasized that the country's level of power and preparedness, saying that the response to any possible aggression by enemies would be strong and crushing.

Cautioning the enemies of dire consequences of possible military move against Iran, the top general said, "Our response to any possible attack would be much more crushing than (Iran's response during) the Sacred Defense (Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s)."
