“Based on this agreement the two sides will make use of each others’ capacities to set up smart and stable defense system in the sensitive spots in Fordo and Natanz,” Jalali told reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony held to mark endorsement of the agreement.
He noted that since both Iran’s Civil Defense Organization and Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base have a common enemy who adopts integrated measures against Iran “we should be prepared in all defense areas with an integrated line of defense as well”.
“Our enemy uses intelligent power and we should make use of an intelligent air defense system as well,” General Jalali said, adding, “We have prepared and signed this Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today because Khatam ol-Anbia is in charge of defending the country against enemy’s air threats and Iran’s Civil Defense Organization is in charge of defending the country against the threats posed to the infrastructures.”
He noted that the MoU will strengthen the strong points of the country’s civil defense and air defense, and said, “We will utilize each others’ capabilities in sensitive locations like Fordo and Natanz according to the MoU.”
General Jalali said the two sides have set up a joint working group in cyber and electronic defense areas to pave the way for all-out defense, and continued, “We have also launched cooperation in area of defending the country’s infrastructure to reduce the vulnerabilities and pave the way for easier cooperation between the two bodies.”
In May, Jalali underlined the necessity for the establishment of civil defense systems in those provinces of the country which host nuclear facilities.
“Threat assessment and civil defense systems need to be deployed in the seven Iranian nuclear provinces (Tehran, Bushehr, Hormozgan, Ardebil, Markazi, Isfahan and Yazd),” Jalali said in the Southern province of Fars at the time.
In relevant remarks in February, Jalali underlined the importance of nuclear sites’ safety for the country, and announced that the organization plans to stage a series of exercises this year to practice management of possible nuclear leak.
“The important point regarding nuclear facilities is that we should be ready against natural disasters such as earthquake to prevent leak in nuclear infrastructures,” the Iranian commander said.
He also noted that the main aim of nuclear leak crisis plan is practicing ways for protecting, rescuing and helping people and conducting required evacuation at the time of leak, if needed.
Jalali also called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to oblige countries with nuclear power plants to follow the safety standards to protect lives of civilians.
