President Rouhani Stresses Need for Increasing Iran’s Deterrence Power
“Today, our Armed Forces are prepared more than ever. Our Armed Forces will not pose any threat to others but meantime, we should keep vigilant against the plots hatched by others and increase our deterrence power day by day,” President Rouhani said, addressing a ceremony to commemorate the National Army Day on Tuesday.
“Our neighbors can rest assured that our Armed Forces will defend the entire important and sensitive region of the Middle-East,” he added.
President Rouhani also blasted certain countries’ armies for their military intervening in other states, conducting genocide, and supporting terrorism and coup.
His remarks came after Iranian Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Kioumars Heidari underlined that the country is fully prepared to stand against any enemy threats.
“We have powerful Armed Forces which can influence and change the enemy’s military equations,” Brigadier General Heidari said addressing Iranian worshippers in Tehran’s Friday prayers ceremony.
He underlined that those who kept on saying that they had military option against Iran on the table cannot ignore Iranian Armed Forces’ might.
In relevant remarks earlier this month, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri underlined that the country’s Armed Forces are prepared to give a rigid response to any possible aggressive act by the enemies.
“We are ready to take speedy reaction against enemy’s possible threats and deepening intelligence superiority over enemy’s movements is our top priority,” General Baqeri said.
He reiterated that Iran’s missile strength is admirable.
