The Iranian defense minister said today, the enemies of the Islamic Republic are conspicuously worried about and shocked by the country’s significant advances in different industrial sectors and in defense capabilities.

Making the remark in an address to worshippers in Tehran on Friday, Brigadier General Mohammadreza Ashtiani added the Defense Ministry is in a special and unique situation owing to the country’s geopolitical position and special religious and revolutionary features as well as the missions of ensuring people-based security and achieving self-reliance in developing national power, Fars News Agency reported.

Brigadier General Ashtiani said the Defense Ministry supports the country’s active defense forces on the basis of a deterrence-based defense doctrine and by adopting an active resistance strategy, noting that the impacts and quality of the ministry’s support have a direct relationship with the Armed Forces’ position and capabilities in the region, and its impacts and results have helped the Islamic Republic make strategic achievements on the battleground.

He added the Defense Ministry’s staff has implemented new methods in terms of deterrence and displaying the country’s defense power and capabilities, having disappointed and defeated the enemies in all areas.

The minister said in the face of the enemies’ hybrid warfare, “We have resorted to sustainable resistance and have become the symbol of the fight against the global arrogance in all areas,” having tipped the balance of power in the region in the Islamic Republic’s favor.

He stressed that the global hegemonic system and sinister Zionist regime are on the verge of collapse and isolation more than ever, which has been achieved in light of our national unity, solidarity, wisdom, insight and the nation’s resistance.
