Like the nuclear technology, Iran’s missile industry is in pursuit of peaceful purposes, said Iran’s Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council.
Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani underscored the country’s missile power, and said military attack against Iran is no longer among the enemies’ options.
“At present and in the near future, no military threat would be posed to Iran; this doesn’t mean that they (the enemies) don’t want (to threaten Iran) but (means that) they cannot as such a move would incur heavy costs on them and therefore, they have excluded it from their agenda,” Shamkhani said after visiting an exhibition of Iran’s air defense in Tehran on Sunday.
He underlined Iran’s high missile power, and said, “Iran’s missile tests and ranges are proportionate to threats, but Iran’s missile power has never diverted towards unconventional weapons and this issue cannot and will never go under foreign monitoring and inspection.”
Noting that the asymmetric enemies of Iran enjoy highly good air force power, Shamkhani said Iran has also made huge progress in the missile and air defense field to combat the same power.
He emphasized the country’s self-reliance and self-sufficiency in building different missiles, and said like the nuclear technology, Iran’s missile industry is in pursuit of peaceful purposes.
