IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Dec 8, IRNA -- Member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mohammad Hasan Asafari said on Saturday that capturing of US Scan Eagle drone by IRGC forces proved the high capabilities of Iranian forces in thwarting plots of enemies.

Intrusion of the US drone into Iran's airspace indicates the hostility of the administration to the Islamic Republic of Iran, he said.

The Americans has adopted a dual policy as they talk about resumption of talks with Iran and at the same time their drones violate the country's airspace in order to attain their sinister goals, he said.

They seek to drag Iran into conflicts, he said, adding that the brave personnel of IRGC proved that the Americans are unable to take any action against Iran.

IRGC once again proved its combat readiness by giving a crushing response to any aggression, he said.

'If the Americans continue such measures, the Islamic Republic of Iran will examine other means but will never give up its legitimate rights,' he said.

IRGC forces captured the US Scan Eagle drone on December 4 over the Persian Gulf waters.
