In response to US President Donald Trump’s threat to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement, Iranian officials claim that they have tripled Iran’s missile production. Iran no longer needs to justify operations, an official said.

Iran has tripled its production of missiles, commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Amir Ali Hajizadeh said to the Islamic Republic News Agency. This forceful rhetoric comes as a response to US President Donald Trump’s threat to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement.
“In the past, we had to justify our operations to many organizations, but this is no longer the case,” continued Hajizadeh. He further said that Iran has fulfilled its needs for land-to-land missiles and that the entire process was approved by the government.
Just two days ago, the French Foreign Minister visited Iran. He was told that American belligerence in the region will not stop Iran’s missile program. Furthermore, an official in Iran’s nuclear program said that if the United States leaves the nuclear agreement, Iran will begin enriching uranium again.
In February 2018, Islamic Revolution Guard Corps Deputy Commander Hossein Salami said that Iran’s missile capabilities will not be negotiated with any world power.
