Majlis committee protests low defense budget

December 17, 2018

TEHRAN – The Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee has protested the administration’s decision to decrease the annual defense budget, the committee chairman has said.

“Recently, the national defense budget was received by the committee, which was not a good news,” Tasnim on Monday quoted Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh as saying.

The defense budget of the upcoming year has decreased for the first time, while it must be five percent of the annual budget, Falahatpisheh remarked.

He added that following the committee’s complaint, the administration seems to be making changes to the defense budget, which is “a good news.”
