The Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not be intimidated by threats to deal with its powerful defense and missile capabilities.

Iran Press/Iran news: Speaking among foreign envoys and military attaches in Tehran on Thursday evening, Major General Mohammad Bagheri added Islamic Revolution has had Islamic and popular nature in a way that its independence, self-sufficiency, and self-reliance are of its salient specifications.

Over the past 40 years, different conspiracies and plots orchestrated against the Islamic Republic of Iran with the aim of defeating the Islamic Revolution, he said, adding, “In this regard, the country managed to foil all conspiracies waged against the country completely,” Mehr News Agency reported.

Bagheri pointed to some plots and conspiracies waged against the country and said, “Imposing eight years of war against Iranian people, supporting former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussain regime during eight years of Sacred Defense (Iraqi imposed war against Iran in 1980-1988) and supporting terrorists who killed 17,000 innocent Iranian people, etc. are some of salient conspiracies orchestrated against the country since the Islamic Revolution.”

Pointing to the lengthy economic sanctions imposed on Iran over the past 40 years, Major General Bagheri said, “All of these sanctions imposed on the country in various fields [such as purchasing and repairing passenger planes, pharmaceutical, and food industries] are unacceptable within the framework of international law.” 101/210
