TEHRAN, Jul. 20 (MNA) – Iranian Parliament’s National Security Commission stressed the need to strengthen Passive Defense Organization in the face of external threats.

“In addition to reviewing cyber, biological, chemical, physical and radiation threats, it was emphasized on strengthening and bolstering legal status of the Passive Defense Organization.”

The meeting was held with the aim of immunizing and protecting country against various threats, he added.

Effective measures have been taken to address the vulnerabilities in the country, he said, adding, “but there are still other threats that need to be addressed, so that removal of these threats requires strengthening the legal status of the Organization as well as using internal resources of responsible institutions to bolstering activities of the Passive Defense Organization.”
