Iran DM: No power could ‘decide on our behalf’
Iran’s Minister of Defense has said ‘Emad,’ inaugurated earlier this week, is totally conventional weapon which functions as a caveat for the world powers.
Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehghan told a ceremony of Research and Technology Festival held in Malik Ashtar Industrial University, which is a military university in Tehran, said that the imperialism would not welcome Islamic Republic of Iran’s achievements in military technology and defense. “They have exhausted all their capacities to create barriers in our way to progress,” the minister emphasized.
“In any confrontation, a party with higher technology and capabilities on the ground will dominate its rivals and will pinned down the enemies to limited space; we want to accomplish such status so that the enemies could no longer impose their will to us; we want a place where we are in the same level ground to raise our leverage,” Dehghan told the meeting. “With the nuclear negotiations, the situation was the same. The world had been very reluctant to provide Iran with knowledge and support Iran deserved; any domestic effort or initiative hit the rock of threats and restrictions carved by the imperialist powers, since they feared that we would achieve these accomplishments,” he asserted.
Dehghan turned to domestic appreciation of the JCPOA; “some inside the country and outside it would raise the question that when Iran accepted JCPOA, it did so along with accepting same limitations on its missile program, defense, and military drills as well; however, we clearly achieve a feat of securing these all defensive activities in full despite restrictions in the Resolution 2231; we had the toughest negotiations during last two years, the parties being powers enjoying satellite, spy networks, and scenarios in depicting Iran as threat to international peace and security,” he emphasized.
