Iran to build warships, large destroyers, minister says

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said the country plans to build warships, large destroyers and research ocean liner, ISNA reported.

He made the remarks on Saturday as visiting Isfahan's Polytechnic University in central Iran.

Iran unveiled its "Jamaran" destroyer two years ago and it has managed to build ultra-speed boats with special capabilities.

Iran has obtained great achievements in military and defense sections despite sanctions of the UN Security Council plus Germany over its refusal to halt peaceful nuclear work.

The sanctions mainly target Iran's shipping industry, banking, insurance and energy sectors.

The US and the West accuse Iran of producing nuclear weapons, Iran denies the allegations and says that its nuclear drive only seeks peaceful purposes including power generation and medical needs.
