Tasnim – “Unveiling this missile production city deep underground is an answer to the idle talk made by the Westerners, who assume they can restrict us and dissuade us from (pursuing) our long-term goals by means of threats and sanctions,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the IRGC’s chief commander, said during the unveiling ceremony.
The ceremony, which was joined by the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, also featured the inauguration of a smart surface-to-surface missile dubbed Dezful.
“Today, the mass production of advanced precision and smart missiles became a reality within the IRGC’s aerospace force,” he said.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Major General Jafari said that Iran’s defense might is in line with the country’s deterrence doctrine and by no means open to negotiations.
“Iran’s defensive capability is deterrent (in nature) and in line with preserving its national security, and it cannot be subjected to any transaction or negotiation,” the commander stressed.
He said the country declares possession of full defensive might on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the victory of its Islamic Revolution.
