Commander stresses armed forces’ close watch on enemy threats

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Army Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan once again underlined the Iranian Armed Forces’ preparedness to repel enemies’ threats, saying that the country’s military forces have a close watch on enemy moves.

“We are constantly monitoring threats along the country’s borders, outside borders and at transregional levels, and this has enabled us to expand the necessary capacities for confronting the enemy proportionately and made it impossible for the enemy to surprise us,” Pourdastan said.

The Iranian commander reiterated that Iran’s military is fully prepared to defend the country.

Pourdastan said that holding wargames will help Iranian soldiers to be always vigilant and ready for confrontation.

In relevant remarks in October, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei described the Iranian Armed Forces’ full preparedness as a major deterrent to enemy attacks, and meantime stressed that the country will not step back in case of any foreign aggression.

“Because of their Islamic teachings, Iranian nation are not the men of aggression and invasion but they will not fall short of confronting any aggression,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing Iranian military units in Northeastern province of North Khorassan at the time.

The Leader lauded Iran’s high military preparedness, and stated, “The only reason the power mongers’ motivation for waging war has downgraded or getting weakened is the general readiness of Iranian nation and the defense readiness of the armed forces.”

The Leader said general readiness of Iranian nation, especially the youth, is today in the highest possible level compared to the past and the armed forces are more prepared and more powerful than the past.
