A senior Iranian military official said his country has tripled its missile production, amid efforts by the international community to curb it.
Speaking at his military headquarters, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace Force, also slammed the world powers, including Israel, for their “hypocrisy” in trying to contain Iran’s military aspirations and limit its missile production, Iran’s Fars news agency reported Wednesday.
“In the past we had to explain our actions to various bodies, but not any more,” he said. “The law of the world is the hands of the United States, Britain, France and the Zionist regime and they have written these laws with arrogance. But if they want they change them.”
His comments come just two days after French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian visited Tehran and called for the regime to curb its missile program.
