A senior Iranian commander says the country’s armed forces are ready to counter any real threat against the Islamic Republic’s territorial integrity.

“We will counter any threat that takes on a real or concrete form in the very beginning,” Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan said Friday, Fars News Agency reported.
He said that the army constantly updates tactics and techniques in proportion to possible threats against the country.
He said that Iran improves its military capabilities in line with its defense doctrine, which is based on deterrence.
Reiterating that Iran’s armed forces are prepared to defend the Islamic Republic’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, Pourdastan said Iran will never initiate a war but will keep a watchful eye on the slightest threats posed  from land, air or sea.
“All enemy moves are monitored and analyzed, even though we believe the enemies are not in a position to open a front against the Islamic Republic,” he added.
The United States, Israel, and some of their allies accuse Iran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program, with Washington and Tel Aviv using this pretext to threaten Iran with a military option.
Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
