Iran’s policy of limiting the capabilities of its missile forces will change if European powers and others continue to try to force the country to leave itself defenseless, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps second-in-command Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami has warned, PressTV reports.

“If the Europeans and others want to pursue the missile disarmament of the Islamic Republic of Iran based on a conspiracy, we will have no option but to resort to a strategic leap,” Salami said.

“Our defence strategy can change commensurate with the conditions and changes in the behaviour of the players,” Salami added.

According to the officer, Iran is maintaining a cap on the range and power of its missiles based on the country’s defensive strategy, even though technically, it does not face any limitations in terms of improving its arsenal.

“All that hear me today, come to terms with the new reality of Iran’s missile might: there are no obstacles or technical limitations to us increasing [the missiles’] range,” he said.

In recent months, the US and several of its European allies, including France, have voiced concerns over Iran’s arsenal of rockets and missile testing activity, threatening sanctions against the country and claiming that the testing activity violates the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal.

Tehran has denied the claims, arguing that its missile testing activities are in full compliance with international treaties, including the nuclear deal, and stressing that Iran’s possession of a “defensive” missile capability was “not negotiable.”
