Protecting territorial integrity, Iran’s Army top priority: Cmdr

Tehran, Safeguarding Iran's territorial integrity and its independence is the main duty of the Army, said a senior Army commander on Tuesday.

'The weapons and the ammunition used in the Army are all devised with today's advanced science,' said Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, Deputy Chief of Iran's Army for Coordination Affairs.

Speaking during the graduation ceremony of military cadets, Sayyari said, 'If we lack the knowledge of the day, then we can neither make advanced weaponry nor use them.'

He added that what the Iranian Army can make is far better than what it could at the time of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

We have to be so strong that the enemy do not even dare think of any aggression against us and be sure that in case of making such stupid move it will face a crushing response, said the commander.
