Promoting defense capacity inevitable strategy of armed forces: IRGC
Tehran, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said in statement on Wednesday that promoting defense capacities and deterrence power of the country is inevitable strategy of the armed forces.
The statement issued on the occasion of the Day of Defense Industry added that following the victory of the Islamic Revolution and end of US military advisors' dominance on the affairs of the country's armed forces, Iran suffered arms embargo by the UN.
After a lapse of four decades after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, undeniable realities reveal that how a defense and military structure totally dependent on the aliens has managed to turn into a defensive and deterrent power in the region, it said.
The statement further noted that the Islamic Republic which emerged victorious from the eight-year war has put high on agenda advancing defense industry by taking advantage of valuable experience of Sacred Defense and reliance on local capabilities.
Today, the country has reached a level of defense deterrence which has prevented the sworn and warmongering enemies of the Islamic Revolution from seeking adventures and posing threats to the Islamic country, IRGC said.
Hailing the country's defense growth and power as the miraculous achievements of the Islamic Revolution in the wake of the Iranian pious youth's endeavors, the statement said that Iran's fortified defense infrastructure as well as its access to modern and smart systems and rivalry with the big powers in various fields, particularly in the arena of missiles, has now turned into a big challenge and a source of concern for the enemies of Iran, especially the evil triangle of the US, Zionist regime and Saudi Arabia.
Enemies' think tanks have focused on restricting and curbing Iran's growth and hatch evil and satanic plots every day to realize their false dreams, the statement said.
The statement concluded that the Islamic Republic of Iran's defense sector will never be negligent even for a moment in the field, and under the guidance of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, it will turn threats into opportunities and will teach hard and regretful lessons to those threatening the security of the country.
