Iran able to export rockets solid fuel know-how: General

Tehran, Iran is now able to export the technology of producing solid fuel for rockets, a military-academic official said on Sunday.

'Iran's defense industry is progressing as it has been able to make a link with university,' said Brigadier General Majid Bokaei, who is also Secretary General of Iran's Supreme National Defense Universit.

'For manufacturing missiles, Iran has imported the technology of liquid fuel missiles from North Korea, but for the solid fuel missiles, Iranian researchers gained the technology on their own,' the general said while addressing a forum of young defense researchers in the Iranian capital.

Criticizing certain countries for not cooperating with Iran properly, the general said, 'After one year of round-the-clock efforts, we are able now to produce solid fuel for missiles'.
