Iran ready to perform joint air defense drills with friendly countries

According to the chief commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Defense Force, the country is willing to share its military knowledge with friendly countries and do joint exercises with them.

Iran (IMNA) - Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard, speaking to a gathering of foreign military attachés in Tehran on Monday, said the Islamic Republic's message to allies and friendly countries is "peace and friendship."

He noted that the Air Defense Force is ready to strengthen military cooperation with friendly governments in a variety of domains, such as training, exchanging technological and operational experiences, and organizing joint war games.

"The Air Defense Force is in charge of protecting Iran's airspace. "By God's grace and the efforts of my colleagues, the country's skies have been transformed into a safe haven for friendly countries within the framework of international law and an unsafe haven for hostile parties," Sabahifard added.

Deterrence, as the Islamic Republic of Iran's defense doctrine, is dependent on friendly and mutual relations with all countries around the world, particularly friendly and neighboring states in West Asia," he said.

He also stated that the 1979 Islamic Revolution's success prepared the ground for a shift in the unjust global order and the collapse of unilateralism in international affairs.

According to him, the rise of an Islamic system in Iran poses a severe challenge to superpower interests, particularly in the key West Asian area.

He stated that while Iran's Armed Forces are fully prepared, they use cutting-edge military equipment and rely on homegrown capabilities, emphasizing that unconventional and mass destruction weapons have no place in Iran's military doctrine due to a fatwa (religious decree) issued by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

The senior general further emphasized that Iran prioritizes self-sufficiency and the use of locally built missiles.

Deterrence in the Air Force's defensive plan includes the capacity to respond promptly and forcefully to any hostile action by the opponent, he noted.
