The enemies of Iran have become disappointed about the option of military threat against Iran, General Hatami said on Sunday, adding that such frustration has forced the adversaries to mount pressure on Iran about the country’s missile program, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“We are well aware that it is impossible to ignore the defense power for a moment,” he further said.
In comments last month, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei urged the Iranian Armed Forces to boost their military capabilities and preparedness in such a way that the enemies would not ever dare think of threatening the country.
Earlier this year, Ayatollah Khamenei called for efforts to maintain and boost Iran’s defense capabilities, hitting back at the enemies for disputing the country’s missile program.
“Without a moment of hesitation, the country must move to acquire whatever is necessary for defense, even if the whole world is opposed to it,” the Leader said.
