TEHRAN, Aug. 21 (MNA) – The reliance on young and specialized domestic experts in the defense industry has led to prosperity in strengthening Iran's defense capabilities, the chief commander of the Iranian Army said Monday.

Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi made the remarks in a message to Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Ashtiani to congratulate the occasion of August 22, the national Defense Industry Day.

According to army commander, August 22 serves as a reminder of the great efforts of the warriors in the defense industry who have been able to bring significant achievements in the design and production of defense equipment and armaments.
