TEHRAN, Nov. 27 (MNA) – The Political-Ideological Director of the Ministry of Defense said that readiness of the Armed Forces is ‘deterrent’.

In a congratulatory message on the occasion of Iran’s Navy Day on Fri. sent to Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi, Hojjatoleslam Seyyed Ziaeddin Aghajanpour said, “"Increasing readiness of the Armed Forces will deter and frighten enemies. We must strengthen ourselves and be prepared to face the enemy's threats and conspiracies in line with foiling their plots."

He pointed to Azar 7 (Nov. 27) as a memorable and lasting day in the glorious history of the Iranian nation.
