Global arrogance targeting Iran’s defense power: Minister

IRNA – The arrogant powers have waged a full-scale economic war against the Islamic Republic of Iran and are targeting Iran’s defensive power, Defense Minister Brigadier-General Amir Hatami said on Monday.

Speaking during a visit to Malek-e Ashtar University of Technology affiliated to the Ministry of Defense, Hatami said that the enemy has adopted a different strategy this time and is aiming to deprive the Iranian nation of its legitimate rights.

He said that the enemies are seeking two goals: to disappoint the Iranian nation about a bright future, and to undermine the defensive power of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

He noted that the enemies’ opposition to Iran’s missile power and regional might is in line with their strategic goal to undermine the defensive power of the country.
