IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 3, IRNA – A top Iranian army official said good news was to come soon in defense areas.

Deputy of the Iranian Army's Research and Self-sufficiency Jihad Department Rear Admiral Mohammad Sadri said the Iranian army was to introduce its latest innovations and products by late March this year.

Talking to reporters while inspecting a festival displaying army’s industrial research projects, he declined to name the projects but said the new products to be introduced by three branches of the Iranian Army will take everyone by surprise.

He said the Iranian Army had repeatedly proven its high capabilities in different areas and was proud of its numerous achievements.

The rear admiral noted that the equipment developed by the Iranian army served only to defend the country and stressed that Iran, based on the religious teachings, never even thought of involving itself in arms races.
