TEHRAN, Aug. 30 - Iranian Defense Minister Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani told a meeting of senior military officiers at the headquarters of the joint chiefs of staff, on Sunday that the Islamic Republic of Iran is “the undisputable power in the region.”

Shamkhani said Iran has achieved “an effective deterrent power" to confront its “enemies” in the region. He did not elaborate.

Shamkhani said that by relying on its defense industry capabilities, the clerical regime has been able to increase its deterrent capacity against its regional foes.

He added that the Ministry of Defense had developed its ground, air, sea and missile capabilities in the three categories of fire, maneuver and precision in a race against its foreign competitors.

Iran said earlier this month it carried out a successful test firing of a Shahab-3 medium-range ballistic missile. But Iran Focus had separately learnt that the test firing was of a Shahab-4 medium-range missile. Defense Ministry experts described last week’s test as “an unprecedented success in Iran’s missile program.”

On Aug. 18, Brigadier General Mohammad Baqer Zolqadr, deputy commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, threatened to strike Israel's nuclear reactor at Dimona.
