Iran among top countries in missile power: General

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 19, IRNA -- Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said on Monday that due to the efforts of the Iranian scientists, Islamic Republic is now among top countries in terms of missile power.

Speaking in a local ceremony, General Baqeri noted that Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution inspired several freedom-seeking movements in the world.

The dominant powers and the Zionists are manipulating Takfiri ideology against the Islamic Revolution to prevent its spread in the world, he said.

Baqeri noted that the US hostility towards Iran has not changed after change of government and it has been always increasing.

If the enemy could win in war with Iran, it will not hesitate to attack the country, the commander said.

He added that Iran is now competing with world powers in various areas of land, sea, air, intelligence, security and cyberspace.

Despite enemies' efforts to destabilize the country, Iran is now one of the safest countries in the world, Baqeri noted.
