The commander of Air Force reiterated the peaceful nature of Iran’s defensive military power.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s defense power is completely peaceful and the proof of this assertion is our bright history and developments in the region,” said Lieutenant General Hassan Shah-Safi, the commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, Press TV reported.

Shah-Safi was speaking in a ceremony marking National Air Force Day in Tehran on Saturday.

He described West Asia as a “sensitive and strategic region” and said Iran should have a powerful presence in the region and adopt independent policies. The commander said Iran should be an international role model as an independent country that possesses up-to-date military systems that it has acquired through self-reliance. Shah-Safi noted that IRIAF is ready to conduct joint drills with friendly countries. IRIAF “is making efforts to establish good military relations with the armies of friendly countries and play an effective role for promoting peace as well as regional and international security,” he said.
