Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Air Force commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh praised the country's advances in a speech reported this weekend. He emphasized that Iran’s infrastructure had advanced and the country has widespread potential now. He said Iran can be a good example for other countries and pointed to Iran’s missile and drone program. In the last year, Iran’s drones have received greater attention. They have threatened US forces in Iraq and Syria as well as Israel and Gulf states.

Iran’s IRGC has immense power and sway in Iran’s strategy and also its development of new weapon systems. In many cases, it is tasked with utilizing drones and missiles in new ways. These methods usually involve threats across the region and trafficking technology to groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis and others.

He said Iran can become one of the richest countries in the world through appropriate “models.” This refers to Iran’s regime that blends religious extremism with its own unique strategy. “We can prove to everyone that religious and revolutionary management not only meets the needs of the people but can also be a good example for other countries. It’s as if our advances in some areas, such as missiles and drones, owe much to this approach.”
