Major General Ataollah Salehi said that his forces will be taking part in joint drills with the IRGC.
The Army Commander who was speaking to Tasnim news agency said "We will have diverse exercise programs this year, one of which will be launched in joint.”
Asked about his opinion about a statement by the P5+1 members who in their nuclear talks with Iran had demanded the country to limit its missile range, he said "No country deals on its defense power and deterrence. The nuclear negotiation team are well aware of all issues.”
Salehi further asserted "Our operations have never limited nor will they ever be. In the same manner that we have increased our defense power and deterrence, from now on also we will produce new equipments by relying on our domestic capabilities.”
