Iran to Unveil New Fighter Jet on their National Defense Industry Day on August 22

  • Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami has announced the unveiling of a new fighter jet on August 22 during the country’s National Defense Industry Day. As US-Iran tension increases in the Gulf, Iran’s Navy has announced for the first time ever that they have mounted an advanced defensive weapons system (locally manufactured) on one of its warships. With the US President Donald Trump withdrawing the United States from 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal, Iran has dismissed any possibility of direct discussions with Washington for resolving the issues that are raised by the USA. Hatami has also said that the topmost priority of Iran is to develop their missile program.
