Iran vows to boost range of missiles if Europe turns into a threat

The deputy head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards threatened Europe that if it threatens Tehran, the Guards will increase the range of missiles to above 2,000 kilometers.

At present, Iran has one of the Middle East’s largest missile programs and some of its precision-guided missiles have the range to strike Israel.

France has called for an uncompromising dialogue with Iran about its ballistic missile programme and a possible negotiation over the issue separate from Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

“If we have kept the range of our missiles to 2,000 kilometers, it’s not due to lack of technology. (…) We are following a strategic doctrine,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, according to Fars.

“So far we have felt that Europe is not a threat, so we did not increase the range of our missiles. But if Europe wants to turn into a threat, we will increase the range of our missiles,” he added.

The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards military force, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said last month that Iran’s 2,000-kilometer missile range could cover “most of American interest and forces” within the region, so Iran did not need to extend it.

Jafari said the ballistic missile range was based on the limits set by the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is the head of armed forces.
