According to Press TV, he said: "Sanctions and resolutions will not create any obstacle to the strengthening of Iran’s defense might and missile capability."
The commander added that Iran’s missile program is not subject to the country’s nuclear agreement with 5+1 Group, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached on July 14, 2015.
Jazayeri further reiterated that Iran’s missile development program is “non-negotiable” and a “red line” for the Islamic Republic.
Therefore, the Iranian general added, adopting “hasty, emotional, deceitful positions” and spreading propaganda against the “show of force” by the Iranian Armed Forces, including the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), are devoid of any justification.
He said the Western governments, notably the US, are determined to impose fresh missile sanctions on Iran through their “unjust and groundless” interpretations of the JCPOA in a “sly bid” to “undermine and dismantle surface-to-surface ballistic missiles” of Iran.
Jazayeri urged the US and its Western and regional allies to accept realities and steer clear of adventurism.
