IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, May 18, IRNA -- Minister of Defense Brigadier-General Ahmad Vahidi dismissed Wednesday reports on Iran’s alleged cooperation with North Korea on missile technology.

Speaking to reporters at the end of a cabinet meeting, the minister said, “Iran is completely self-sufficient” in the field of missile technology and “has no need to others.”

“Iran and North Korea have made no exchange in this regard,” stressed the brigadier general.

The minister said that new achievements of Iran’s defense industries, including some naval vessels and ballistic missiles, would be revealed during the ceremonies to mark the anniversary of the liberation of Iran’s Khorramshahr city from the Iraqi occupation in 1982 which is to be commemorated on May 24.
