Iran's army deterrence against enemies: Armed forces chief

Tehran, Aug 26, IRNA – Iran's army is playing a role of deterrence against enemies' threats and global arrogance, army chief said on Saturday.

'Today our country is passing through a sensitive and vital period and the army plays the role of deterrence against the enemies' threats and global arrogance, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri said.

Promoting defense and combat preparedness is a demand that the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has long been making, he added.

'The enemies should come to the conclusion that the cost of an aggression on Iran is much higher than its benefits for them,' Baqeri said.

The enemy has found decisively that any military aggression on Iran would lead to their humiliating defeat, and that's why they are turning to proxy wars, the General added, promising that Iran is facing a bright future as a result of the armed forces' efforts.

'Iran has been able to reach a satisfactory level of deterrence in the face of direct military threats by the enemies,' he said.
