The senior spokesman of the Iranian Armed Forces has once again reiterated Iran’s message of peace and friendship to the world, emphasizing that the country seeks no one’s permission to boost its defense capabilities.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran manufactures any equipment it requires to defend the country and will not ask for anybody’s permission in this regard,” Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi told IRNA on Sunday.
He added that Iran has been enhancing its power since the victory of the Islamic Revolution some 40 years ago, and currently enjoys high capabilities in defense and security sectors.
The military official emphasized that the Islamic Republic continues to play its role as a powerful country in both regional and global spheres.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s defense equipment, capabilities and power are meant for deterrence. However, if any country sought aggression … against this land, it would be given such a strong response that it would regret what it has done,” Shekarchi added.
The military official said the Iranian Armed Forces are capable of “easily” defending the country’s interests, adding, “We are saying to the whole world that Iran’s message is not war and bloodshed but peace and friendship.”
