“We are fully confident because we are completely prepared,” Araqchi said in an interview with the Arabic-language service of RT on Tuesday.
He underlined the Iranian Armed Forces’ full preparedness to defend the country, saying that the Americans are also aware of this fact.
“In my view, they do not dare to make aggression against us and as a result, we believe that there will be no war to break out in the region,” Araqchi said.
In relevant remarks in October, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Deputy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said enemies did not even dare to fire a single bullet at Iran as they rested assured of Iran’s crushing response.
“The enemies should know that they will receive a harsh, firm and decisive response to any aggression or move against the country and the Islamic Revolution,” Rear Admiral Fadavi said.
“30 years after the end of (Iraqi-imposed) war, no country dares to fire even a single bullet against us and this shows that the enemy is well aware of the Islamic Republic’s power and might,” he added.
Also, in February, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said enemies did not dare to attack his country due to its high defense capabilities and preparedness.
“Enemies do not have the courage to attack Iran militarily and they have resorted to espionage and cultural measures more,” General Baqeri said.
He underlined Iran’s good situation and progress in defense industries, and said, “At present, over 80% of military equipment needed by our country’s Armed Forces is manufactured inside Iran.”
General Baqeri said that the Iranian Armed Forces had also registered good performance in playing advisory role in Iraq and Syria in war on terrorism.
