A top advisor to the Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) underlined the Iranian Armed Forces’ preparedness to confront enemies, and said IRGC forces are equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and powerful missiles.
Elsewhere, he referred to the enmities of the arrogant powers, specially the US, with the Muslim states, and said the US is like a virus threatening the entire world, which wants to never see tranquility in Islamic countries and has killed over one million people in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Tehran launched an arms development program during the 1980-88 Iraqi imposed war on Iran to compensate for a US weapons embargo. Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles and fighter planes.
Yet, Iranian officials have always stressed that the country’s military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country.
