Hamnei: Iran needs to increase its military strength



IRAN should increase its military force to prevent war, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Hamnei told a gathering of air force commanders, dismissing US sanctions on the country as a “criminal act.”

“We should be strong in preventing any war against the country. If we were weak, we would encourage our enemies to invade Iran,” Hamnei said, according to the state news agency IRNA.



Iran Increases Military Power?

The Islamic Republic has pledged to increase its military strength despite increasing pressure from Western countries to reduce its military capabilities, including its ballistic program.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington have intensified since 2018 when US President Donald Trump left a 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers under which Tehran agreed to limit its nuclear program in exchange for easing sanctions.

“After the revolution, their goal was to stop us from having a strong army and a strong air force … But look at us now. We even produce planes. We have turned their pressure into capabilities,” Hamnei said, state television reported.

Iran marks the 41st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, in which the US-backed Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi was overthrown in 1979.

US imposes sanctions

Washington has reiterated the sanctions it sought to halt all Iranian oil exports, seeking to force Iran to negotiate a more comprehensive deal.

Hamnei, who dismissed US sanctions as a “criminal act,” banned Iranian officials from negotiating until the US returned to the deal and lifted all sanctions.

He said Iran should move its economy away from its dependence on oil exports.

Iran and the United States were on the verge of war in early January, when Iran's most prominent General Kasim Suleimani was killed in a US drone attack on a convoy in Baghdad.

Tehran responded with missile attacks on US targets in Iraq.

Iranian television said 80 “American terrorists” were killed and US helicopters and military equipment destroyed, but did not substantiate this with evidence.
