    Iran will pass into service cutting-edge missile defense systems by March 2017, local media reported Thursday, citing Brig. Gen. Amir-Farzad Esmaili, commander of Iranian Khatam al anbia air defense base.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Tasnim agency, Esmaili said that the new missile systems were a homegrown technology, claiming Iranian airspace is the most secure in the Middle East.

    In May, Iran performed successful test of two short-range ballistic missiles. Iran's target of boosting its national defense program has sparked concerns among the international community, despite reassurances from Tehran that it would never threaten the national security of another state.
