Iran is mulling over options of increasing its defensive missile strength and this is assuming that their enemies will also be strengthening their offensive and defensive capabilities.

Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said on Monday the Islamic Republic will further enhance its missile capabilities for defensive purposes. Hatami made the announcement during a live TV program during which he said that Iran’s current missile might was good and was one of the main components of deterrence, but they intend to strengthen it further.

According to the Brigadier General, with Iran trying to intensify its defensive capabilities, enemies would also try to excel their powers. “We will boost (our) defensive power so much that no one would dare violate Iran,” he told PressTV.

Hatami further said that the S-300 surface-to-air missile defense systems which Iran had bought from Russia have also been inducted to shield sensitive sites.

“The domestically-built Bavar-373 air defense system would soon be used alongside the S-300,” he added.
