Claims on Iran border insecurity during sanctions 'nonsense'

TEHRAN, Nov. 17 (MNA) – Deputy Coordinator of the Iranian Army Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari slammed as ‘nonsense’ the predictions that the security of the Iran’s borders would get into trouble during the imposition of new sanctions.

Speaking on the sidelines of a local ceremony on Saturday, Sayyari pointed to the effects of US sanctions on Iran’s maritime industry, saying “the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been subject to sanctions since February 11, 1979, and maybe even earlier.”

Referring to Iran’s progress in the maritime sector, he said, in the near future, Sahand Destroyer and Fateh-class submarine will join Iran navy fleet.

"Those who claim that the imposition of new sanctions will insecure Iran’s borders are wrong and are talking nonsense," he added.

Security is held on the borders of the country, Sayyari said, adding, it is not unlikely that an incident happens over time, however, the security of the borders in Iran is much better than those of other regional countries.
