Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan says the country’s military resolve will never waver and will always remain strong against any potential threat.

“Nothing can erode our determination [to improve] our defense capabilities,” Dehqan said in a televised interview on Saturday, adding that Iran will continue to design and manufacture any type of missiles proportionate to all potential threats.

Dehqan said Iran’s missiles currently meet the country’s defensive requirements, saying, “We will increase the range of our missiles in proportion to possible threats.”

He stated that Iran is also determined to conduct missile tests and military exercises in due time.

Dehqan’s remarks came on the same day that Iran unveiled a new solid-fuel precision-guided missile, named Fateh 313, which has been designed and manufactured by the country’s experts.

Fateh 313, with a range of 500 kilometers (310 miles), is an advanced generation of missiles which runs on combined solid fuel using a domestically-designed sensor.
