DM Vows to Further Boost Iran’s Missile Capabilities

Iran’s DM Vows Firm Response to Enemy’s Moves

Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami says the Islamic Republic will further enhance its missile capabilities for defensive purposes.

Speaking on a live TV program on Monday, Hatami said Iran’s current missile might was good and was “one of the main components of deterrence.”

As Iran made efforts to strengthen its defensive power, he said, enemies would try to surpass that power, “but we would carefully monitor them and would strengthen ourselves accordingly.”

The defense minister further said that the most important principle of Iran’s military doctrine was “comprehensive defense through active deterrence.”

“We will boost [our] defensive power so much that no one would dare violate Iran,” Brigadier General Hatami said.

He also announced that all the S-300 surface-to-air missile defense systems that Iran had purchased from Russia had been installed and were covering sensitive sites.

The domestically-built Bavar-373 air defense system would soon be used alongside the S-300, he added.
