“The Iranian nation does not accept any restriction in the way to achieve its objectives and the Islamic Republic of Iran will respond to any enemy threat with threat,” Brigadier General Dehqan said on Monday, addressing a ceremony in Tehran.
He reiterated that Iran supports Syria and Iraq in their fight against terrorists because part of the Muslim World has come under attack, and said, “This is our duty to help the Muslim societies against such onslaughts.”
“It has been emphasized in the defense doctrine of the Islamic Republic that we not only do not accept threats, but will respond to any threat with threat and we believe that the Islamic Republic of Iran should be able to respond to all threats and show its capabilities to the enemy,” the Iranian Defense Minister added.
In early May, Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari that his forces are always prepared to give a crushing response to the slightest aggression by the US army.
“We always consider the world arrogance (the US and its allies) as a threat and are ready to confront it,” Sayyari said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran.
He underlined Iran’s naval power and its deployment in the international waters, and said, “Our flotilla of warships will sail around Africa and sail towards the Atlantic Ocean in the near future.”
Sayyari also said that the Iranian fleets of warships have rescued at least 25 foreign and tens of Iranian vessels from pirates’ attacks in international waters.
