“Today, the enemies of Iran which are fully aware of the defense and military capabilities of the Iranian Armed Forces do not speak of military option anymore,” General Hatami said in a meeting with the Iranian lawmakers in Tehran on Wednesday.
“Today, given our country’s defensive might, we are in such conditions that the Islamic Iran cannot be threatened militarily by any foreign power,” he added.
In relevant remarks on Monday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri underlined the country’s full preparedness to appropriately defend itself against enemies’ possible threats and bullying.
“If the enemy casts a covetous eye on our interests or conducts even a slight act of aggression, the Islamic Republic will give an appropriate response at an appropriate time,” General Baqeri said during a visit to the ground, aviation and armored units of the Iranian Army in the Southwestern province of Khuzestan.
He underlined that defense power and strength of the Iranian Armed Forces have made the enemy come to the conclusion that any aggression against the country would have no outcome except casualties and expenses.
“Every time that a novice politician asks his country’s army to conduct an act of aggression against Iran, top military commanders of such countries, including the United States, warn their politicians that it is impossible to engage in a war with Iran and that they must pursue political approaches in dealing with the Islamic Republic,” General Baqeri added.
