In a speech in the western city of Hamedan on Sunday, Brigadier General Heidari praised Iran’s defense power and said the country’s military might is at the highest level.
“We announce to the people that there is no danger threatening our country and that we are not on the brink of any war,” he said, adding, “However, it does not mean that we should neglect to maintain our preparedness…”
The commander further emphasized that the Iranian Armed Forces have reached such a level of deterrence given their defensive capabilities that the enemies have now resorted to options other than military ones.
This level of deterrence is the outcome of the Armed Forces’ presence, resistance, and especially self-sufficiency, Brigadier General Heidari went on to say.
