  • Iran Iran unveils new missile defense system

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Thursday hailed Iran's growing strength against the USA pressures, official IRNA news agency reported.

"TALKS are useless" with a United States that "does not accept logic", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared today in a speech marking the launch of a surface-to-air missile.

Rouhani further pointed to the global opposition to the United States government and said, "The America has never been so much legally and politically weaker, more humiliated and isolated than today, and I do not remember such a poor situation for the United States in history".

President Hassan Rouhani attended the unveiling ceremony for the mobile surface-to-air system and ordered it to be added to Iran's missile defence network, state news agency IRNA reported.

Bavar-373 is a mobile missile defense system created to intercept and destroy incoming hostile targets flying at altitudes of up to 65 kilometers.

The air defense system employs three different types of missiles to hit targets at various altitudes.

Bavar 373 has two search and intercept radars, which can resist electronic warfare and electromagnetic bombs.

In addition, the radars are capable of detecting anti-radiation missiles (ARM) that are used to confront air defenses, it added.

The unilateral U.S. sanctions reimposed on August 7 prohibit Iran's purchase of United States dollars and precious metals, part of a larger move that attempts to cut the country off from the worldwide financial system.

The Iranian government-affiliated Press TV posted a tweet featuring a video of what it said was the new missile defence system.

He added that Iran needed the system for its own defence, sarcastically pointing out that "when the enemy launches a missile against us, we can not give a speech" asking him to "self-destroy the missile in the air".

"U.S. sanctions can not stop our progress", he said.

Iran's defense principle is merely based on deterrence, he stressed. "If there were no sanctions, Iran would not return to its indigenous capabilities and not achieve its economic or political independence".
