Iran to launch production of high-precision missiles, armed seaplanes

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi the country will soon launch the production line of two new domestically-manufactured military systems.

“The production line of high-precision missiles and armed flying boats (seaplanes) will be launched soon,” he told reporters on Wednesday.

Over the recent years, Iran has made important breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly made clear that its military might is merely based on the nation’s defense doctrine of deterrence and poses no threat to other countries.

Regarding the developments in Syria, Vahidi rejected certain media reports that Iran has troops in the Arab country and said such media propaganda aim to cover up the presence of foreign terrorists in the country.

“Such remarks are aimed at covering up the presence of terrorists from different parts of the world in Syria and they are false,” he said.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011.
