Iran has gained such immense power and deterrent capabilities that the enemies would not come to think of taking military action against the country, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ deputy commander said.
Addressing a ceremony in Iran’s southeastern city of Zahedan on Thursday, Brigadier General Hossein Salami said Iran has learned how to overcome bullies and developed and organized the tools for such a victory.
“Today, we have acquired a modern arrangement of an immense power in sea, space and on the ground that we have blocked the enemies’ path to military option,” he added.
Assuring the Iranian nation of the impossibility of a war against the country, the commander said Iran’s success to gain deterrent power and national security in the region’s critical conditions has turned it into regional “anchorage of stability”.
He further slammed the US administration for walking away from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), saying the only way to counter the US and its economic war against Iran is to strengthen national resistance.
In a speech from the White House on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism and seeking nukes before announcing the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal.
On Wednesday, IRGC Chief Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari called for boosting Iran’s defense capabilities, saying the US withdrawal proved that America is against Iran’s defense and missile power and is using Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program just as an excuse.
