The ground has been prepared at the Iranian Defense Ministry for achieving great and strategic targets.
Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammadreza Ashtiani made the remark on the sidelines of a visit to an exhibition by Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO) on Saturday, IRNA reported.
He added the ministry’s planning is aimed at making collective efforts to this end.
Brigadier General Ashtiani said studies and field assessments show that the AIO has managed to, in line with the guidelines of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, implement effective measures and take great leaps forward.
The minister stressed that devotion and sincerity are the main keys to achieving success, as seen in the lives of Iranian anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and commander Ali Sayyad Shirazi.
Lieutenant General Soleimani was assassinated in a drone attack at the order of former U.S. president Donald Trump near Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020.
Fakhrizadeh, who headed the Iranian Defense Ministry’s Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, was assassinated near Tehran on November 27, 2020 in an act of terror blamed by Iranian officials on Israel and U.S. intelligence.
Ali Sayyad Shirazi was assassinated by anti-Iran terrorist group Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization in 1999.
