A top Iranian commander on Sunday said that his country will never permit “foreigners” to inspect its military sites.
“Not only will we not grant foreigners the permission to inspect our military sites, we will not even give them permission to think about such a subject,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the second-in-command of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was quoted by Press TV as saying.
“They will not even be permitted to inspect the most normal military site in their dreams,” he declared. Salami added that a harsh response awaits anyone who talks about such inspections. “Visiting a military base by a foreign inspector would mean the occupation of our land because all our defense secrets are there. Even talking about the subject means national humiliation,” he said, according to Press TV.
