Tehran (IP) - Commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh has emphasized that the US is doing all it can to hit and sanction Iran.

Iran Press/Iran news: On the sidelines of Wednesday's production boom exhibition, answering Iran Press correspondent's question about the US' act of sanctioning 13 foreign entities and individuals in China, Iraq, Russia, and Turkey for supporting Iran's missile program, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said: "The Americans are doing whatever is in their power to hit and sanction Iran. You see, they tried to hit Iran on the elections as well, that is, they tried to disrupt the elections and to scare and discourage people from taking part, but our people responded well by participating in the elections."

He added: "We are not dependent on outsiders, on other countries, hence we should not be worried. How can we build satellite carriers, spacecraft, and complex petrochemical plants today? Americans cannot stop us. Even if they surround our country, we will not have any problems with either our civilian sector nor our defence and military sectors. Our managers should believe this."
