Iran’s response to US to come where it matters
A senior Iranian commander says the Islamic Republic will resolutely and relentlessly continue to upgrade its defense and missile capabilities despite hostilities, adding that Iran’s response to the US will come where it matters.
“Upgrading the country’s defense and missile equipment is among the Armed Forces’ priorities and its process will not stop even for a moment,” Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Tuesday.
He added that customary diplomatic relations will by no means affect Iran’s defense power.
The general emphasized that the Iranian nation and Armed Forces would increase their all-out defense preparedness to counter threats against the country.
Jazayeri said the “new strategy” of the arrogant regimes, particularly the US, is based on the discourse of undermining Iran’s defense power,” adding, however, that Iran’s response will come “on the real battlefield.”
Speaking in a televised speech from the White House on Sunday, US President Barack Obama said his government will “vigorously” enforce sanctions against Iran’s ballistic missile program.
