BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 A.M.) – Iranian Defense Minister Amir Khatami inaugurated the mass production line of a medium-range air-to-air missile, dubbed Fakour, in Tehran on Monday.
During the ceremony, he underlined Iran’s readiness to give a response to any kind of possible aggression.
“We will stand up to their bully and sanctions with all of our force. We will give them a tough response,” Khatami said, referring to the country’s enemies.
“They think they can subjugate the Iranian nation through threats – this is an ill-conceived idea,” the defense chief added.
The ceremony came a day after US President Donald Trump posted a message on Twitter in all capital letters addressing the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,” Trump wrote in his message.
