Army Chief: Iran Ready to Share Defense Capabilities with Allies
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force voiced readiness to supply the friendly countries with Iran’s achievements in the defense industry.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a military exhibition on Monday, Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari said the Iranian Armed Forces, including the Army Ground Force, have gained self-sufficiency in all areas of the defense industry.
Iran could supply the “friendly and brotherly countries” with its defense capabilities, the general noted.
Highlighting the close interaction between the Army and the universities and knowledge-based companies, the commander said the bright ideas are detected and sponsored for mass production.
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.
In comments in February 2018, 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,” the Leader said.
