He, moreover, stressed, “promoting resilience and protecting critical infrastructure of the country are considered as the strategic issues in the country's defense system.”
“In order to face new cyber and electronic threats in the future wars, we need to adopt new approaches and strategies”, he said and added, “In this regard, General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran attaches importance over Passive Defense Organization due to its crucial role of preventing the country against the unexpected and new threats.”
