The Iranian Islamic Republic is planning to reveal a number of space and missile projects during the country’s Ten Days of Dawn celebrations, defence minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi has revealed.

“These projects play an important role in increasing the country’s defence,” Vahidi said.

He also stressed the need to adopt comprehensive naval programmes including building commercial and passenger ships, repairing vessels and expansion of its naval fleet, according to Press TV.

The Iranian Defense Ministry has recently delivered new naval cruise missile systems in a move to boost the nation’s defence capability.
