Iran’s Minister of Defense Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan has introduced five new domestically-built pieces of defense equipment during a ceremony attended by top military officials.

The defense achievements, unveiled in Tehran on Monday, comprised the Pars Cam detector device, an explosives and drugs detector device, anti-shock and explosion-proof polymer covers, a new generation of NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) suits, and a production line for Obidoxime Chloride, a medicine for countering chemical agents.

“In spite of the sanctions against [Iran’s] defense sector, the armed forces have foiled enemies’ intentions and objectives by attaining self-sufficiency and producing new achievements, and will do the same in the future,” Dehqan said.

He added that the Iranian Defense Ministry is working on the design and development of “advanced and sophisticated defensive equipment” as an “important mission.”

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and reached self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other nations, especially regional neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence, Press TV reported.
