Rouhani: Iran’s Defense Power Based on Moral Values

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said that the country’s defense power is based on Islamic principles and morality, adding that Tehran does not consider defense progresses as a means of expansionism.

“Iran's defense doctrine is based on Islamic principles and moral values,” Rouhani said, adding that some regimes resort to the military power to dominate the world.

He stressed that the Islamic Iran’s Armed Forces use defense capabilities and capacities only to defend moral values and bolster Islamic principles.

In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force Brigadier General Esmayeel Qa’ani downplayed Israel’s attempts to weaken the resistance front, and further said that the US has proved that it only understands the language of force.

“We know how to speak with a country like the US which only understands the language of force,” General Qa’ani said.

He also played down Israel’s attempts to weaken the resistance front, and said the regime has failed in its attempts and has been forced to build a tall wall around itself.

General Qa’ani said that the US situation in the region is no better than Israel as evidenced in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Elsewhere, he stressed the efforts made by former IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General martyr Qassem Soleimani to establish security in the region, and said in the past 10 years, he was directly confronting the world’s most notorious terrorists.
