FNA- Commander of Iran’s Law Enforcement Police Brigadier General Hossein Ashtari stressed the country’s high capabilities to defend itself using advanced home-made weapons and missiles, and assured the nation that the Iranian borders are safe.
“Our defense system enjoys more power than many advanced countries and our defense and deterrence power is also high,” General Ashtari said, addressing a ceremony in the Eastern province of South Khorassan on Sunday.
Stressing Iran’s high missile power, he said that the country’s defense, marine and ground military systems are the best in the region.
General Ashtari also underscored that the Iranian borders are the safest areas of the country.
In relevant remarks late December, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami underlined Iran’s superiority in the region, and said no power can threaten the country.
“Today, Iran is a big regional power and no power threatens us anymore and the US officials no more speak of military options (against Iran),” General Salami said in Tehran last Tuesday.
Stressing Iran’s superiority in the region and the ineffectiveness of the western sanctions against the country, he said, “Today, we are successfully fighting against the enemies’ policies in the Eastern parts of the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, and Syria which was the gate of the US policies in the region is now being fully closed.”
“We are on the path of progress and nothing will stop us,” General Salami underscored.
Also last month, General Salami underlined that Iran has developed its missile power during the two decades of western-imposed sanctions in a bid to boost its deterrence power.
“The missile might of the Islamic Republic of Iran became mature over decades of sanctions; now it is a deterrence power that the enemies have come realize it,” General Salami said.
He reiterated that the deterrence power is to psychologically influence the enemy, and said, “Iran’s missile power has exactly envisaged such picture for Iran’s enemies.”
