TEHRAN, May. 28 (Press Shia Agency) – Commander of Iran’s Navy Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari underlining the need for increasing deterrence and defense capabilities of the Armed Forces, said the Armed Forces are security axis of the country.

Pointing to the Leader’s remarks on security, Sayyari said security in Iran enjoys a stable and proper status, while the world is buckling up with critical insecurity.

“Security is highly regarded in every country; yet enemies of Islam have created insecurity working hard to destabilize the Islamic Republic; there will be no progress in economy, prosperity, social development and industry without security,” Sayyari said.

He referred to the power of Iran’s Armed Forces, saying more powerful, stronger and smarter Armed Forces means more security inside and outside the country.

The most important factor in promoting the country’s defense power is faithful human resource, Sayyari said, adding “Leader has considered three factors as the main characteristics of Armed Forces: faith, knowledge and courage.”
