IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 24, IRNA -- Commander of IRGC Aerospace Department Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh said on Sunday that Iran is not willing to wage war against other countries but is fully ready to give a crushing response to enemies.

He made the remarks in a meeting with foreign military attaches residing in the Islamic Republic of Iran on Sunday.

Threats, sanctions and pressures are parts of a scenario pursued by the West over the past 33 years, he said.

According to IRGC public relations department, the commander said such pressures and threat will backfire and will lead to more preparedness and higher capabilities of the Iranian people.

Trans-regional forces have set up military bases in the vicinity of Iran, he said, adding "These bases which used to be regarded as threats have now turned into opportunities for us."

The Iranian people and their military forces are ready and vigilant, he underlined.

All plots against Iran are doomed to failure, he said, adding that Iran is ready to turn all threats into opportunities.

During Iraqi-imposed war, Iran was not ubale to meet its military requirements by itself but now it has become self-sufficient in production of ground to ground and shore to sea missiles, all type of drones, artilleries and radar systems, said the commander.

Iran is in its best military and defense status, said the commander.
