TEHRAN (ISNA)-An Iranian official Hesam Hashemi said the country’s armed forces enjoy satisfactory intelligence and high human resources potentials.

The Head of Intelligence Protection Office of the Iranian Supreme Leader stressed Iran’s readiness in different fields including the training of the forces, reconstruction and modernization of the relevant pieces equipment and added, “We proved our capabilities to the whole world that how much we were ready even at the time we lacked these pieces of equipment."

Hashemi turned to the U.S. president’s claims on using another RQ170 over Iran’s airspace and noted Iran would take the same approach as it showed regarding the previous one if they really aim at doing so.

The drone, which had already been displayed on Iranian television, was captured by Iranian forces earlier this month.

Officials brought the drone down with a cyber attack after spotting it flying over Iranian air space.

Also Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said last Monday the drone is the Islamic Republic of Iran's property and it would decide what to do with spy unmanned aircraft.
