TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami praised Iran’s self-sufficiency in producing military hardware and said the country is at the cutting edge of modern technologies in the defense field.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a visit to an exhibition of the IRGC’s advanced military products in Tehran on Wednesday, Brigadier General Salami described the exhibition as a venue where a huge amount of information about modern technologies and sciences in the field of defense has been put on display.

“Today, we are at the cutting edge of the world modern technologies in terms of the variety of advanced and complicated defense technologies,” he added.

“We have reached the point of unrestrained development of modern defense sciences and technologies,” the commander said.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.

Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.

In November 2016, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said Iran has gained such great missile capabilities that enemies would not begin to contemplate attacking the country.
