TEHRAN (Iran News) – Commander of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi highlighted the country’s self-sufficiency in the production of military equipment and said the Islamic Republic has gained “remarkable achievements” in building submarines.
“The most complex pieces of equipment in the world are the military ones and among the military equipment, those related to the Navy are the most complex, especially submarines,” Admiral Khanzadi said in a speech in the northeastern province of Razavi Khorasan on Thursday.
“Today, thanks to the efforts of the youth of Iran, the country has made significant progress (in production of submarines),” the commander went on to say.
He further stressed the need for the Iranian nation to become more powerful, saying the only way forward for the Iranian nation is to become stronger.
To that end, security is a necessity, and of course, security has different aspects, including military security, Admiral Khanzadi said.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
Back in February 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called for efforts to maintain and boost Iran’s defense capabilities, hitting back at the enemies for disputing the country’s missile program.
“Without a moment of hesitation, the country must move to acquire whatever is necessary for defense, even if the whole world is opposed to it,” Ayatollah Khamenei said at the time.
