Rouhani says Iran now ranked 14th in 2020 military strength ranking, said President Hassan Rouhani.
His remarks came on Wednesday at the opening ceremony of the 11th parliament, RIA Novosti reported.
According to him, over the past years, enormous transformations have taken place in various areas of the country's military potential.
After signing the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, Iran was repeatedly criticized by Western countries for testing ballistic missiles.
Besides, the country's authorities and military officials have repeatedly indicated their intention to rely on the country's domestic potential in military developments. Nevertheless, Tehran is counting on the end of the arms embargo in October 2020, despite the US desire to prevent this.
Earlier, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps launched the first military satellite into orbit.
