Iran Top Regional Power Due to Defense Achievements:IRGC

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in a statement on Wednesday underlined Iran’s capability to produce different state-of-the-art military equipment and weapons, saying that the products have turned the country into the first regional power.

As stated, developing production capacities in various sectors such as expansion of knowledge-based networks and increasing accessibility to modern systems and technologies stand among the achievements of domestic defense industry in the past years and in the sanctions era, the statement said on the occasion of the Defense Industries day in Iran.

Domestic defense’s achievements and capabilities in various sectors, which meet international standards and are able to deter enemies’ threats, have made the Islamic Republic the top power in the region and a rival to trans-regional powers, it added.

Undoubtedly, defense industry is the “symbol of Iran’s authority and the country’s production boom”, the statement said.

In a similar statement earlier today, the Iranian defense ministry underscored the country’s strong determination to increase its defense capacities as a deterrence against enemies.

“The strategy of increasing the defense capacities with focus on achieving various and modern equipment in the ground, marine and aerospace (specially missiles) fields is still the strategy for the Armed Forces’ future,” the statement said.

It added that the Iran-made weapons and equipment, specially the pin-pointing missiles, which have produced decisive security power in the region prevent any adventurism by the arrogant powers against Iran.

The statement also underlined that Iran’s defense industries have turned into a role model for the Islamic Resistance Front countries to produce power against enemies in proxy and terrorist wars and force them to flee from the war quagmires that these enemies themselves have made in the Islamic states, including Yemen.
