Senior spokesman: No need to answer about missile tests

Tehran, There is no need to answer anybody over missile power, senior spokesman of Iran's armed forces said.

Brigadier General Abulfazl Shekarchi made the remarks recently in an exclusive interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on the US claims over Iran new missile test.

'We need no permission if we tend to test or develop our missile power,' he noted.

Americans need missiles to wage aggression on other countries, dominating territories and fulfilling their interests, he said.

Islamic Republic of Iran has never had such purposes, he reiterated.

Iran requires promoting its missile power for preserving its interests and preventing any aggression, senior spokesman said.

Emphasizing the fact that missile is a necessity for Iran, Shekarchi said 'we will produce and test missiles' as much as we need.
