The deputy army commander for coordination highlighted Iran’s growing military power and vowed to boost the army’s presence on borders to protect the country from any foreign threats. “According to the missions given to the army, defending the territorial integrity and protecting the independence of the Islamic Republic’s establishment are the responsibility of each of us,” Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said, addressing a gathering of army cadets in Tehran on Saturday, Tasnim News Agency reported. The top military official emphasized that the army’s success in accomplishing its missions has increased day by day. “In order to protect our country from any threat, we should always have a powerful presence on land, sea and air borders so that no one dares to encroach on our borders,” the former Navy commander said. In a decree in November, the Leader of Islamic Revolution put Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi in charge of the Navy and appointed Sayyari to the post of deputy army chief.
