FNA- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi underlined Iran’s huge progress in defensive fields, and said Washington doesn’t feel powerful enough to think of posing a threat to Iran, and is rather thinking of developing a deterrent power against Iran’s powerful military.
“During the years after the victory of the Revolution, the trend of enhancement of our defense power has always continued and with God’s help, our deterrence power today is not comparable to the past at all,” Admiral Fadavi said, addressing a forum in Tehran on Saturday.
He added that Iran enjoys such a high deterrence power that the Americans have announced that “they are now seeking to develop a power which can deter Iran”.
Yet, the IRGC commander underlined the defensive nature of Iran’s military programs.
In relevant remarks last month, Admiral Fadavi underlined superiority of Iran’s naval power in the Persian Gulf over the US and its regional allies.
“The IRGC Navy is fully ready against foreign threats and 100 light and heavy vessels are prepared to defend the country’s water borders against the US and its regional allies every day,” Admiral Fadavi said.
He underscored Iran’s naval superiority over the US and its regional allies in the Persian Gulf, and said, “Today, the one who feels endangered at the water borders is the Americans.”
Also, in mid-March, Admiral Fadavi warned that Washington is using every means to prevent the growth of Iran’s deterrence power.
“Our enemies, headed by the US, are using all their power to control Iran’s deterrence power,” Fadavi said, addressing a ceremony in the Southern province of Khuzestan.
He, meantime, underlined that the enemies are aware of Iran’s defense power, and said, “They are sure that they cannot harm our country by launching military war.”
