Military Capabilities, Regional Influence Set for Expansion Military Capabilities, Regional Influence Set for Expansion

Defense Minister Amir Hatami said Friday Iran’s regional influence is one of its major facets of power that has kept hostile regimes at bay, adding that the US efforts to undermine the military might is indeed an exercise in futility. General Hatami said the US has done all it can since the Islamic Revolution in 1979 to undermine Iran’s defense power, trying everything, including punitive sanctions, but did not achieve the results it desired , ISNA reported.
His comments came after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on May 21 laid out a list of demands for the government in Tehran if it wants permanent relief from economic sanctions and reach a new international agreement after Washington pulled out of the 2015 international nuclear deal signed by Iran and the world powers.
