Iran to relentlessly boost defense power

Tehran, Dec 26, IRNA – Iran will reinforce its defense power with no pause, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said.

We hope that the lawmakers will spare no effort in this regard,” Hatami said addressing Majlis (Parliament) Tuesday session with families of Iranian war veterans and martyrs.

“Saddam era's Iraqi-imposed war (1980-88) made us know our friends and enemies,” he said.

“Due to the depth of animosities against Iran we have developed a strategic view which is achieving defense capabilities,” he added.

“Weakening Iran’s national and defense authority is enemies’ strategy,” he noted.

“We were aware of the fact that if Daesh terrorists had seized control of Iraq and Syria, Iran would have also faced serious threats,” Hatami reiterated.
