TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Deputy Chief of Iran’s Army for Coordination Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari warned enemies that in case of any aggression against the Islamic Republic, the Armed Forces would make them regret it.
In a speech on Saturday morning, Rear Admiral Sayyari highlighted the preparedness of Iran’s military forces and said the country’s defense power is based on “the principle of deterrence”.
The commander added that if the enemies make a move against Iran, the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran will give them a response that will make them regret it.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, including its missile power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
Back in February, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called for efforts to maintain and boost Iran’s defense capabilities, hitting back at the enemies for disputing the country’s missile program.
“Without a moment of hesitation, the country must move to acquire whatever is necessary for defense, even if the whole world is opposed to it,” Ayatollah Khamenei said on February 18.
