Iran says it has various options to neutralize ‘illegal’ USA sanctions: Tasnim

The naval drills come at a time of rising tensions with the United States, and less than a week after the Warsaw conference that aimed to create a US-backed alliance against Iran that would include Israel and other Arab states in the Gulf.

Following the brief detente that surrounded the 2015 signing of a nuclear deal between the two longtime foes-alongside China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom-the US and Iran again fell out following the election of President Donald Trump, who ultimately scrapped the deal in May. All these are opening the curtain for Iran's annual military drill.

United States government officials asked The Times to withhold some details of its reporting, mostly involving the identities of specific suppliers to the Iranian program, because the effort is continuing, the report said.

Mr Trump pulled out of an global agreement on Iran's nuclear programme last May and reimposed sanctions on Tehran.

The goal was "to protect the territorial waters of our country, maintain lines of communication and promote the flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran", according to the Iranian navy's official media.

More than 100 of Iran's Navy fleet participate in the war game, including destroyers, missile launching navies, logistic navies, light and heavy submarines, hover crafts, fixed wing air crafts, and helicopters.




Western experts say Iran often exaggerates its weapons capabilities. "They were trying to carry out sabotage in part by exploding missiles in the air, but they failed to do anything since we had predicted and secured, " the program, he said.

In the comments reported by Fars news agency, he added: "but they couldn't do a damn thing because we had seen this coming from the start and had reinforced this sector".

Last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said it was "quite possible" that the U.S. was behind the second consecutive failure to launch a satellite in recent months.

UN Security Council Resolution 2231 - adopted just after the nuclear deal - calls on Iran "not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons".

"Iran has plans in place that will neutralize the illegal US sanctions against Iran's oil exports", Shamkhani said.
