Iran has capability to disrupt any military plots the U.S. may seek to implement against it, Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said on Monday.
Iran has the requisite technology and equipment, including unmanned aerial vehicles, to “counter electronic and covert warfare,” Vahidi was quoted by Press TV as saying.
On December 4, Iran brought down a U.S. RQ-170 Sentinel stealth reconnaissance drone that had crossed into Iran’s airspace from neighboring Afghanistan.
Vahidi blasted the United States for breaching “all international regulations and violating the rights of Iran and Afghanistan.”
He also lashed out at the UN for failing to condemn the violation of Iran’s airspace by an American spy drone.
