Iran armed forces firm to develop defense power more than ever

Tehran, Oct 14, IRNA – Iran's Armed Forces are more determined today to promote the country's defensive power, Iranian Armed Forces spokesman General Masoud Jazayeri has said.

He said that on behalf of the Iranian Armed Forces and its vigilant people he would tell the sinister and corrupt US administration that Iran will continue to upgrade its defense power more determined than before.

Iran will spare no effort in supporting oppressed people especially those in western Asia and even in the US, he added.

He went on to say that the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) will disturb American leaders' dreams.

US President Donald Trump on Friday took a new strategy toward Iran and decertified Tehran's commitment with the 2015 landmark nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Trump's approach has been criticized by many countries, international bodies, political communities and world media.

'Iran nuclear deal is not a bilateral accord and it belongs to no country and no country is able to terminate it,' High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said minutes after Trump's speech on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Iranian President Hassan Rounani in a televised message shortly after Trump's speech said his remarks were 'nothing but a handful of baseless and empty allegations against the Iranian nation.'
