Int'l lawyer: Urging Iran to reduce its missile program unrealistic

Tehran, Sept 24, IRNA – The demand to reduce Iran deterrence power is unrealistic, a prominent law expert from Geneva's Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies said.

'The recent #Ahvaz terrorist attack showed once again that #Iran is a prime target of terrorist militias. Calling on Iran to diminish its deterrence capabilities (missiles) in this hostile security landscape would not only be unrealistic, but it would be of very bad taste,' Reza Nasri tweeted on Monday.

At least 25 people were killed and more than 60 others were injured during Saturday morning terror attack in Ahvaz, capital of Khuzestan Province, in southwestern Iran.

“The terrorists disguised as the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and Basiji (volunteer) forces opened fire at the authorities and people from behind the stand during the parade,' Governor of Khuzestan Gholam-Reza Shariati said earlier.

The self-proclaimed Saudi-affiliated Al-Ahwaz terrorist group claimed the responsibility for the attack.
