IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Dec 10, IRNA -- Deputy Commander of Armed Forces Brigadier-General Masoud Jazayeri said on Monday that Iranian defensive power has embarrassed the US.

He was making a reference to the capture of the second US drone ScanEagle by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.

He made the remarks in his speech to a ceremony marking anniversary of capturing US drone RQ-170 stealth last year.

'One year after IRGC captured the United States' highly advanced RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft, the reality showed that Iran has become strong enough to defend the country thanks to the progress made in science and technology,' Jazayeri said.

He said Iran is able to discover and trace any planes over its territory and its scientists are well capable of applying different technologies to safeguard territorial integrity.

Warning US administration to stop violation of Iranian airspace, the commander said Iran is able to capture the US most complicated apparatus, therefore, they had better stop intervention.

Jazayeri said although Iranian scientists have made use of the last US drone technology, Iranian expertise in aviation technology has taken over the technology of planes and drones such as ScanEagle.
