Tehran (ISNA) – U.S. information about Iran's actual military capabilities was so limited, Iranian senior spokesman for armed forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri emphasized.

"US reports on Iran's defense power shows the country's limited information on our actual military capabilities," he said.

"Iran has allowed a short glimpse into its defense power for hostile countries particularly US, to confuse its enemies and prevent any potential invasion," Jazayeri went on to say.

"Currently, the deterrence power of the Islamic Republic of Iran is based on active deterrence in a way that any aggressor is reduced to annihilation and surrender," he added.

"It has been years since the threat of war and military aggression against our country has moved away due to our active deterrence power, but this does not mean that we will stop our progress in various defense fields," the spokesman stressed.

"Stability and peace in West Asia region depends on removing the outside powers from this vast and strategic territory. All instances of war and bloodshed in the region are the result of wrong policies of the US and Israeli regime, as well as all corrupted and reactive governments. Yet, even if the Americans spend ten times more expenses of what they already have for dominating the region, they will never be able to achieve their sinister goals," Jazayeri maintained.
