Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani

Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has underlined the necessity for improving the country’s defense capabilities to the highest level and in proportion to enemies’ threats. “We should pay attention to defense preparedness so that our defense capabilities meet the highest [level] as far as possible,” Larijani said Saturday in a Tehran ceremony marking the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Day. He emphasized that other than cultural efforts the country must be defensively well-equipped as well and noted that “our defensive efforts must conform to our country’s terrain diversity as well as the enemies [military] capacities.” Insisting that the country’s confrontation with the enemy in the international scene is multifaceted, Larijani added that at some cases our enemies engage in rogue political measures against us and in other instances they resort to other sorts of pressure to undermine our nation. The present conditions as well as the country’s national interests call for the high deterrence preparedness of the Armed Forces, he concluded. MFB/IS
