No Secrecy in Developing Iran’s Missile Program: IRGC Official

A lieutenant commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) made it clear that the country does not need to keep anything in the dark about development of its missile industry.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, General Hossein Nejat, the IRGC lieutenant commander for cultural affairs, underlined that the country’s missile program will both continue to be expanded and made public according to the grand strategies set by the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces.

He also urged the administration to demonstrate power and not give in to the United States’ excessive demands.

In late March, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underscored the need for boosting Iran’s defense capabilities, warning that enemies are making use of every tool available to undermine the Islamic Republic.

Ayatollah Khamenei said at the time that if the Islamic establishment seeks technology and negotiations but lacks defense might, it will have to buckle in the face of any weak country that poses threat to it.
