Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani said Iran’s defence power, including issues related to missile technology development, which is used to defend the country, are not negotiable, whatsoever.
He said Washington is in no position to talk about Iran’s defence capabilities.
“The United States, which arms a country such as Saudi Arabia to commit war crimes in Yemen, and which seeks to milk them (Saudi authorities) while trying to disrupt security in the region, and while a delusional, imbalanced and wicked individual like Trump is at the head of your government and keeps speaking out against the Islamic Republic of Iran, how dare you talk about Iran’s defence capabilities?” said Larijani.
He underlined that Iran, under the leadership of the late Imam Khomeini and Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has not feared animosities over the past 40 years.
“We will weather these challenges firmly and strongly as ever,” he said, according to a report by the Persian-language Fars News Agency.
“Friend and foe know well that the Islamic Republic of Iran has the upper hand in the region today, and we hope the country’s dignity will keep growing day by day,” Larijani underscored.
