IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Aug 22, IRNA -- Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said on Thursday that armed forces will decisively support Iran's foreign policy under the current tense situation by boosting their defense preparedness.
Addressing the ceremony to unveil 'Bavar 373' air defense system on Day of Defense Industry (August 22), he added that defense and technology are the two main features for every country's progress in all fields.
"Although Iran's policy is peace and friendship in the region and world, the enemy has done all in power to deal a blow to the Iran nation," he said.
Iran's defense industry has reached a point to produce all precise and pinpointing missiles, as it has reached a strategic defense capability in the field of missiles, he said.
As per the Fatwas by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Iran has designed no missile with unconventional warheads and it is only seeking to keep the country's deterrence power, Hatami said.
