Iran to continue missile program: Defense minister

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 20, IRNA -- Iran's newly-appointed Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said on Sunday that Iran will continue its missile program.

General Hatami made the remarks speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the first cabinet meeting of the newly-formed Iranian government, when asked what was his response to the pressures by certain states on Iran's missile program.

'We will firmly stick to our defense industry and will not allow a day of delay in defense ministry's mission,' Hatami said.

Iran's defense program is compatible with indigenous defense and will not be affected by any kind of pressure, the minister added.
