No one can talk about Iran’s military power: Rouhani

بزرگداشت بین‌المللی چهلمین سالگرد شهادت آیت‌الله سید مصطفی خمینی با حضور رییس جمهور

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stressed that no one can talk about the military power of Iran.

Speaking in a ceremony commemorating martyrdom of Sayyid Mostafa Khomeini on Monday, Dr Rouhani said, “Someone may comment about Iran's weapons. Let's not pay attention to these comments. Iran's weapons are the same as the rest of the world. Our constitution says that it must be deterrent and, perform effective defense in the rainy day. The whole world is the same. No one can talk about the military power of another country, which is based on their constitution and defensive strategies”.

"We ask you when our people were under artillery and bombardment of the enemy missiles; did you give us weapons of air defence, let alone offensive weapons? At that time, we sent a Europe-made anti-aircraft gun, which it was committed to repair, but they didn't, and they did not even gave it back to us, saying that you are in war and we cannot do it. Now they want to talk with us about weapons," he added.

"Talk of Iran's defensive power and presence in the region is escaping forward. Who brought devastation to the region and its people? Who helped terrorists to destroy Iraq? Who created these terrorists?" the president noted.

"There are a lot of these words. Do not trust them very much. If we are to respond to threats one day, we know how to do that," Rouhani added.

The president emphasized, "Our way is undoubtedly the right path, and we will continue this path with all our might".
