Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan underlined the country’s astonishing progress in producing state-of-the-art weapons and equipment, and said Tehran is a major exporter of hi-tech weapons to the world.

“There are industrial infrastructures, scientific potentials and technological properties (in Iran) with the help of which we can build anything we want and use them,” Dehqan said in the Central city of Qom on Saturday night, addressing a gathering to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

“Today, those weapons which are considered to be among the most hi-tech arms are exported to many countries and we don’t need the foreign states at all,” he stressed.
