The Iranian parliament approved a bill on Sunday to increase the country’s missile power with the aim of boosting the Islamic Republic’s deterrent and defense capability.
According to FARS News Agency (FNA), the bill approved within the framework of Iran’s 5-year development plan, calls for enhancement of the country’s deterrence power by developing and boosting its missile production capability, strengthening the air defense power at different short-, mid- and long-range levels.
It also requires the government to update safe communication networks to establish a command and control system, make all weapons systems “smart” and mobile appropriate with threats.
In addition, it requires researching, designing and producing the needed equipment to “confront the terrorist groups” as well as to develop Iran’s naval power by equipping it with “advanced weapons.”
The bill also calls on the government to enhance “the country’s electronic warfare capability”.
