Missile programs would soon come to fruition

TEHRAN, Jan. 20 (MNA) – Senior adviser to Leader’s representative to IRGC has said US recent measures to put sanctions against Iran for its missile program indicate breaking their promise.

Brig. Gen. Yadollah Javani told Mehr News on Wednesday that US sanctions against Iran’s missile programs would not have any effect whatsoever on the country’s missile program in cutting the advances in the program, but would add to Iran’s seriousness to forward with fresh motivation and resolve; “in the past, we have seen that such sanctions and pressures only triggered a letter by President Rouhani to accelerate the pace of missile programs in the Ministry of Defense,” he commented.

“The achievements of missile programs will soon be communicated to the public; I would ensure the public that at the end of the day, things will be totally different than the US officials would imagine, which we had seen during nuclear issue where the US misguidedly calculated that sanctions and resolutions would curb Iran’s program; however, they only find themselves facing with 20,000 centrifuges, a few tones of 20 per cent enriched uranium,” Javani asserted.

“Iran’s missile program and defense have been more transparent in terms of casting doubts by the western powers on the program. Our missile program is by no means negotiable and justified on defense and security grounds; no pressures or sanctions would have the Islamic Republic of Iran to suspend its missile activities,” said the advisor, adding that it was relatively predictable that “we will find stronger motivations to advance missile program.”

Javani also reiterated much-quoted statement that violation of the JCPOA through sanctions by the US on Iran’s missile program proved that they were not to be trusted; “the US officials should understand that such violations would only confound the already negative image in the minds of the Iranians; the diplomatic machinery should work to inform the world public about this violation by the US through mounting pressures from diplomatic and legal channels,” he demanded.
