Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said his country is now the fourth missile power in the world and is working on plans to develop radar-evading missiles."Iran ranks fourth among the world missile powers after the US, Russia and China," General Dehqan said on Saturday, December 20, 2014..
Iran fires an upgrade missile at the Lut desert in southeastern Iran, 03 July 2012.
He said Iran has increased the range of its missiles in reaction to enemy's possible threats, but it is now "trying to increase the precision of our missiles and their endurance, and (also) make them radar-evading".
General Dehqan further pointed to the ongoing Iran-Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany) talks and the US efforts to include Iran's missile program in the negotiations with the powers, and said, "We are merely negotiating with the G5+1 over the nuclear issue and nothing other than the nuclear issue is and will be on the agenda."
He underlined that a sum of 3,000 military personnel will be involved in the air defense drills and another 10,000 will take charge of the logistic operations.
