Foes fuming about Iran’s scientific progress
“They (enemies) don’t dare to take practical action (against Iran), because the country has made scientific advances,” Ayatollah Emami-Kashani added.
The cleric then described the test of missiles as sign of Iran’s commitment to guaranteeing its security, stressing that the tests have nothing to do with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a lasting nuclear deal between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
“The West themselves have even admitted that the missile tests and the JCPOA are unrelated,” the cleric noted.
Back on Tuesday, US State Department Spokesman John Kirby said Iran’s recent missile tests are not a “violation” of the JCPOA.
It came after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) test-fired a number of advance, ballistic missiles during a nationwide missile exercise.
IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad-Ali Ja’fari had already described the message of the missile drill as security for Iran and the neighboring countries.
