Revolutionary Guards Commander: Tehran has unmanned aerial vehicles

Iran has 7,000 kilometers of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), Iranian media reported, citing a statement from the Revolutionary Guards commander today, which could be interpreted by Washington as a threat to regional security.

Tehran's claim comes as Iran and six major powers are in talks to revive a 2015 international agreement on Iran's nuclear program. Former US President Donald Trump walked out of the deal three years ago, reinstating US sanctions on Iran.

Western military analysts point out that Iran sometimes increases its military capabilities, but drones are one of the components of border monitoring from Tehran, mainly in the Gulf region around the Strait of Hormuz, in region from which 1/5 of the world oil is transported.

Iran and the regional forces it supports have gradually upgraded the use of unmanned aerial vehicles in Yemen, Syria and Iraq in recent years. “We have unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) with a long range of 7,000 kilometers. “They can fly and return to base, but they can also land wherever they are scheduled to do so,” Revolutionary Guards commander Hossein Salami told IRNA.

US President Joe Biden is seeking to revive and expand the nuclear deal with tougher restrictions on Iran's nuclear and missile programs, as well as restrictions on Tehran's activities. However, Tehran has ruled out negotiations on its ballistic missiles, but also on its role in the Middle East, where Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia have been embroiled in wars through the clash of other armed groups.
