Iran highlights their military capability to defend themselves against any aggressionPrensa LatinaPresident Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iran's military leaders said on Tuesday (17th) that the national army has a high combat capability, able to make a tough response and neutralize any external aggression.Speaking at a ceremony held in Tehran on National Army Day, Ahmadinejad stressed the concept of the defensive forces of the Persian country, but stressed that he would act firmly in the case of threats to the interests and dignity of the people.He indicated that Iran has achieved advances and success in the goal to achieve higher levels in science and technology, and explained that for such peaceful purposes it is necessary to have "sustained security guaranteed by a brave and well-trained armed forces."The President, who was accompanied by commanders from different areas of the military, said the Islamic Republic has always been among the most peaceful nations of the world, but stressed that enemies will receive a strong response if they dare to attack."If any kind of aggression is launched, they must think that they will be in an endless shame," Ahmadinejad said, recalling that the priority is to "be ready to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Iran."During the military parade at the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the Iranian head of state explained that the Persian Gulf region is "highly sensitive" and that they have joined "the collective efforts of all countries," without mentioning recent tensions.The reference was interpreted as a response to statements by leaders of the Arab Gulf countries to Tehran and the criticism of the trip by Ahmadinejad last week to the island of Abu Moussa, one of three whose sovereignty is in dispute between Iran and the United Arab Emirates.After praising the defensive capabilities and military readiness of ground, naval and air forces, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan also warned of a "devastating reply" or "knock-out" to those who want to "boast and threaten the country."The commander of the Army Ground Forces pointed out that the Persian nation develops its military to ensure peace, but their military institutions, "will not falter in facing threats and vehemently defending Islamic Iran, exerting their full power."
