  • Iran never to lose indigenous missile technology: Larijani

Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani reiterated the country’s policy not to negotiate with foreigners about its defense capabilities and said the Islamic Republic would never lose the “indigenous” missile technology.

The enemy says that Iran should not build missiles because it seeks to undermine the country’s security, Larijani said in a speech in the central province of Isfahan on Thursday night, Tasnim News Agency reported.

“They (enemies) should be aware that the (Iranian) missile technology is indigenous and cannot be taken from the hands of the Iranian nation,” he noted.

He further pointed to enemies’ attempts to destroy Iran’s national interests and said they are trying to hamper “the great movement” of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

However, the enemies’ plots against the Islamic Republic will be foiled by the Iranian nation’s unity, the parliament speaker said.
