Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces Maj. Gen. Mohammad
Hossein Bagheri made the remark in the opening ceremony of the 5th National
Conference on Fast Crafts on Thursday in Tehran.
Bagheri noted the various threats ahead of the Islamic
Republic and the long history of US hostility against the Iranian nation and
establishment, adding these threats are for the most part sea-based.
The Army Chief highlighted the unique role and position of
the Iranian Navy against sea-based threats, adding "what brings the enemies to
the conclusion that the costs of a sea war with the Islamic Republic of Iran
will not be worth it is our country’s deterrence power that they have felt in
every fiber of their being.”
Maj. Gen. Bagheri deemed the domestically-manufactured fast
crafts "miracle of IRGC’s Naval Forces” and a "culture”, praising the crafts
for their agility, speed, stability, stealth, ease of use and maneuverability.
