|Iran unveils new defense achievements||
A smart guidance system for precision-guided ballistic missiles and smart composite armor were the pieces of military hardware which were unveiled during the ceremony attended by Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, the chief of the General Staff of Iran’s armed forces, Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan, and other high-ranking military officials.
The new guidance system will improve the precision of ballistic missiles. This feature along with ballistic missiles’ destructive power and their capability to overcome anti-missile systems will significantly increase the combat capabilities of the country’s armed forces.
On February 11, Iran test-fired a laser-guided surface-to-surface and air-to-surface missile named Bina (Insightful) and the new generation of a long-range ballistic missile.
U.S. officials have said that Iran’s ballistic missile program should be addressed as part of a comprehensive nuclear deal between Iran and the major powers.
However, Iran has announced that it has no intention of discussing its ballistic missile program with the six powers.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s defense issues are neither negotiable nor subject to compromise. They are definitely among our red lines in any talks,” Abbas Araqchi, the Iranian deputy foreign minister and a chief negotiator, told Iranian state television recently.
