Head of Iran's Army Center for Strategic Studies Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan underlined that the Islamic Republic will not start war against any country, but will certainly firmly defend itself against any foreign aggression.


"Iran will not be the first country to start a war, but it will vigorously defend itself against external threats," Brigadier General Pourdastan said.

He underlined that Iran’s Armed Forces’ military doctrine is formed based on deterrence and defense.

"We are not looking for dominance over any other country, but we will confront the enemy's threats anywhere, and will try to enhance our defense capabilities," Brigadier General Pourdastan said.

In relevant remarks in February, General Pourdastan underlined that the country's Armed Forces "are ready to give a crushing response to the country's enemies".

"We have accurate information about the enemies' vessels in the waters around the country, and our military experts are introducing the defense capacities corresponding to the enemies' capabilities," Brigadier General Pourdastan said.

He reiterated that Iran's doctrine is based on defending the country, but in case of threats Iran will give a firm response to the enemy.

Brigadier General Pourdastan further said that the Iranian Armed Forces aim to strengthen their deterrent capabilities to prevent any attack on the country.

"The arrogant power is after making the Takfiri terrorist groups powerful in order to hurt the Islamic system," he added.
