Brigadier General Esmayeeli reiterated that Iran has the safest airspace in the Middle East, and said, "Today the number of passing flights has increased to 1,300 in every 24 hours as compared with 900 flights three months ago."

In relevant remarks on Thursday, Brigadier General Esmayeeli announced that the country will unveil new missile defense systems early in September.

"Missile systems with the capability to stand against electronic warfare and mid-range and long-range radars will join the integrated air defense system on September 1," Esmayeeli said in the Northeastern city of Semnan.

"The radar and missile defense systems will cover an important part of the country in the South and Southeast," he added.

Esmayeeli underlined that defensive depth is one of the main important feature of these systems, specially the long-range radar defense systems.

Esmayeeli announced in June that the country is able to meet all its needs in manufacturing air defense systems.
