  • Iran self-reliant in producing over 38,000 military gear parts: Defense Minister

Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said the country’s military units are capable of manufacturing more than 38,000 military equipment and hardware parts despite pressures and sanctions.

The enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran have made every effort in the past years to stop Iranian factories from operating, General Hatami said during the opening ceremony of a military exhibit in Tehran on Thursday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He said the defense ministry, despite all bans and pressures, has so far managed to make great progress in producing different equipment.

The country is self-reliant and currently capable of manufacturing over 38,000 military gear parts and equipment without the help of other countries, the minister said.

Over the past years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing military equipment and hardware despite illegal sanctions and economic pressures imposed on the country.
