Iranian defense program will not be affected by diplomatic Interactions

Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri stated that the country's defense program will not be affected by diplomatic exchanges and interactions between Iranian and other countries' statesmen.
On Tuesday Jazzayeri stated "Enhancement of the country's defense and missile equipment are among the Armed Forces' priorities and this trend will not stop for even one moment"

He also added "Those who are familiar with the Islamic Republic of Iran's ruling system know that the country's defensive will is not affected by any common diplomatic interactions and bilateral and multilateral talks"
Jazzayeri also said that the US and the hegemonic regimes' new strategy to weaken Iran's defense power will be responded in action.

Massoud Jazzayeri's  remarks came after the US imposed more sanctions on the Iranian companies and individuals over a recent ballistic missile test right after Tehran and the world powers started implementation of the July nuclear deal whose key purpose was removal of all embargos against Iran.
The new sanctions prevent 11 entities and individuals linked to the missile program from being able  to use the US banking system.
