TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan underlined that the country is now enjoying the best military force with unique features, who are fully prepared to confront any possible enemy threat and aggression under any conditions.
“The Iranian Armed Forces are ready to defend the Islamic Republic of Iran’s territory and dignity in any conditions under the wise commandership of their just and righteous religious leader (Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei),” Dehqan said, addressing a group of Iranian cadets in Tehran on Wednesday.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Armed Forces enjoy a distinguished and special position among the world nations and armies due to their unique traits and features,” he added.
In relevant remarks earlier this month, Commander of the Army Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan warned that the country’s Armed Forces will give a swift and crushing response to any aggressive military move.
“In case of any threat, our response will be more deadly and heavier,” Pourdastan said in Tehran at the time.
He underlined Tehran’s policy of keeping peace and tranquility in the region and the world, but meanwhile said Iran monitors the moves of the regional and trans-regional states day and night and if any aggression is made against the country, it will receive a crushing response.
Also in December, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani downplayed Washington’s war rhetoric against Tehran, and underlined that the US has collapsed in all the three arenas of economy, politics and military.
“The Americans and (US President Barack) Obama are lying when they assert that all options are on the table against Iran,” Soleimani said in the Southeastern city of Sirjan.
“That the Americans say we have brought Iran to its knees by pressures and sanctions is nothing more than a lie, rather it is the US which has collapsed in political, economic and military arenas which are considered as the main elements of power,” he added.
Soleimani noted the US failures in the three aforementioned areas, and reminded that the US has the largest volume of debts in the world. “The US has also failed in the military aspect in any country against which it has waged a war, including Iraq and Afghanistan,” he added.
In the political field, he said, the US is also the most hated country in the world, meaning that it has fallen down in every aspect of power.
