Envoy: Iran missile power makes enemies’ threats more difficult

London, May 31, IRNA – Iranian Ambassador to London said Iran missile program is not the only one in the region, adding that the US, Israel and their allies' concerns is are due to Iran's high deterrent power.

Iran missile program has made more difficult the possibility of designing war programs and military threats against Iran, Hamid Baeidinejad said in an Instagram post.    

Information from missile programs in the regional countries indicates the fact that, unlike the propaganda campaigns promoted against Iran's missile program, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, and even the UAE have devised large-scale missile programs in collaboration with other countries for decades and produced missiles with very high ranges.

He added that since Iran-Iraq imposed war, Saudi Arabia has been developing four or five missile submarines under the management of the strategic missile forces by purchasing technology of Chinese rocket, Dong Feng.

In addition to short-range missiles of up to 1,000 kilometers, Saudi Arabia also has a variety of mid-range ballistic missiles.

He noted that Israel has designed and implemented a large-scale missile program to support its nuclear program and conventional weapons program.

Baeidinejad reiterated that the Jericho III ballistic missile has a range of thousands of kilometers that can target the regional countries.

Egypt, also since decades before its Former President  Gamal Abdel Nasser’s era, with the help of European countries and then under the support of the Soviet Union, and later China and North Korea, designed and implemented many missile programs that produce several types of ballistic missiles, Iranian diplomat said.
