Self-Reliance in Weapons Production

The country is self-sufficient in producing defensive weapons and can also undertake exports, according to Defense Minister General Amir Hatami. 
"We could not even manufacture barbed wire during the eight-year Sacred Defense and used to import it from other countries," lawmaker Mehrdad Lahooti quoted the minister as telling a parliamentary session on Sunday, ISNA reported. 
The defense chief was referring to the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war during which a million died on both sides.  
According to lawmaker from Langarud in Gilan Province, Hatami said, "Today we have become self-sufficient in producing advanced weaponry to safeguard our security and are able to export if the need arises."  
The minister said Iran is steadfast in preventing hostile powers from undermining the country's security and that of regional states.
