Commander of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Lieutenant General Amir Ali Hajizadeh underlined Iran’s determination to become stronger in the field of missile technology.

“We will become more powerful in the fields of defense, military and missiles as well as drones [unmanned aerial vehicle], and we will not allow insecurity to prevail in the country,” Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by Fars News Agency on Friday.

He noted that Iran’s military hardware are domestically produced.

“We produce the most advanced military and defense weaponry, including different kinds of surface-to-surface, surface-to-air and surface-to-sea missiles,” he said.

In relevant remarks in late July, Defense Minister Lieutenant General Hossein Dehqan reiterated Tehran’s firm stance to continue developing its missile industries, stressing that its defense programs do not violate the nuclear agreement signed with world powers in July 2015.

“Iran’s missile program is on the national defense agenda. The US or other states cannot take a stand against Iran’s defense rights,” Dehqan said at the time.
