Army: Iran’s defense industry symbol of self-sufficiency

Tasnim – Iran’s Army praised the country’s progress in the defense industry as a potent symbol of self-sufficiency and self-reliance.

In a statement issued on the occasion of the National Day of Defense Industry on Monday, the Army said the country’s advances in various military fields have turned the defense sector into a symbol of self-sufficiency and materialization of the Resistance Economy purposes.

It also emphasized that the Army, with its great homegrown capabilities and equipment, is prepared to combat any potential or practical threat posed by the enemies of the Islamic Revolution.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.

Iranian military officials maintain that the country does not favor a war, but it is fully prepared to respond to any hostile assault.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has on several occasions cautioned the adversaries that Iran’s response to any assault will not be confined to defense alone, but aggressors will face a crushing response.
