TEHRAN (FNA)- Lieutenant Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Abolfazl Sepehri Rad said that the sanctions imposed against Iran have made the country stronger in production of home-made equipment.
Embargoes imposed on Iran have made the country's domestic capabilities grow, General Sepehri Rad said on Wednesday.
He added that the Iranian sky is well-protected against foreign threats by domestically grown defense systems.
The Iranian commander said that the enemies are fully aware of Iran's capabilities in the defense sector adding that Iran is no more in need of purchasing specific parts of defense systems since it is now able to manufacture them domestically.
In relevant remarks in December, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that his country’s indigenized production of defensive systems and equipment has turned it a leading manufacturer of the field in the world.
Across many areas, the world’s state-of-the-art technology has been indigenized by the agency of Iran’s capable defensive technologists, said Brigadier General Hajizadeh.
He added the Islamic Republic’s defensive systems and equipment boast a thoroughly indigenous production process, noting that the military hardware's quality has turned the country into one of the world’s defense technology leaders.
