“If we kept the range of our missiles at 2,000 km, it’s not because of a technical deficiency. We follow a strategic doctrine, “said General Salami quoted by Reuters .
He adds: “For now, we feel that Europe is not a threat. That’s why we have not increased the range of our missiles. But if Europe wants to become a threat, we will increase the range of our missiles. ”
These comments come in response to an interview with French President Emmanuel Macron, who earlier called in November for vigilance against Iran over its ballistic missile program. In addition, the head of French diplomacy, Jean-Yves le Drian, had attracted the wrath of Tehran when, traveling to Ryad, he had expressed the concern of Paris about the “hegemonic temptation” of Iran in the Middle East.
At the same time, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, urged the Muslim world to fight the “cancerous tumor” in Israel. “Today, the question of Palestine is the main problem in the Muslim world, because it is an Islamic country usurped and transformed into a means of sabotaging the security of several countries in the region. This cancerous tumor (Zionist regime) should be fought, “he tweeted.
