Military official: Iran armed forces possess high intelligence potentials
Iran enjoys satisfactory intelligence and high human resources potentials, Head of Intelligence Protection Office of the Iranian Supreme Leader Hesam Hashemi said, ISNA reported.
Hashemi also stressed that Iran's readiness in different fields including the training of the forces, reconstruction and modernization of the relevant pieces equipment.
"We proved our capabilities to the whole world that how much we were ready even at the time we lacked these pieces of equipment," Hashemi noted.
Hashemi turned to the U.S. president's claims on using another RQ-170 over Iran's airspace and noted Iran would take the same approach as it showed regarding the previous one if they really aim at doing so.
The drone, which had already been displayed on Iranian television, was captured by Iranian forces earlier this month on Dec. 4, 140 miles inside the Iranian border from Afghanistan. Later, The Islamic Republic protested the violation of Iran's airspace by a U.S. drone.
U.S president Barack Obama asked Iranian authorities to return the drone back, however Iran has refused to do so.
