TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s continued progress in cultural, social, military, economic, diplomatic and scientific fields are the sole way to confront US plots against the country, a senior Iranian military official said Sunday
Speaking on Sunday on the occasion of the Sacred Defense Week, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri used the occasion to remind the US administration’s long record of hostility towards the Iranian nation.
As regards objectives behind the US hostility, Jazayeri said nothing but the destruction or change in behavior of the Islamic Revolution will satisfy the US.
“The only way to counter the US plots (against Iran) is to promote internal strength in the Islamic Republic’s ruling system and achieve high peaks of progress in different cultural, political, military, economic, diplomatic, scientific and technological fields,” he said.
Jazayeri further noted the US will continue hostile policies against Iran as long as the Iranian nation keeps its revolutionary spirit alive, continues to fight the global arrogance and seek justice.
He emphasized that the Sacred Defense Week is an opportunity to remind the US crimes against Iran.
In Iran, the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war is known as the Sacred Defense, and Sacred Defense Week is held on the anniversary of the beginning of the war.
Sacred Defense Week begins on Shahrivar 31 in the Iranian calendar (September 22 this year), which is the day Iraq invaded Iran and began the imposed war on the country in 1980.
Each year, Iranian armed forces attend nationwide military parades to mark the week, during which the country’s latest defensive achievements are put on display.
