TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami highlighted the high level of Iran’s defense preparedness, saying that this has forced our enemies not to think of military options any longer.
The reason that enemies today can no longer think of military option against Iran is our “growing defense might and preparedness”, General Salami said on Sunday.
He further pointed to Iran’s progress in the defense sector and said, this progress is happening on a daily basis as the Islamic Republic continues to use the existing threats and turn them into opportunities.
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.
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 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,” Ayatollah Khamenei said at the time.
