Minister of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said on Monday that the Iranian forces are to test fire new generation of missiles and unmanned planes in the near future.

Speaking at the fourth defense-related research festival, he said science and technology is the scene of competition for superiority among various schools of thought and cultures in the world.

Competition in the sector leads to economic and political domination which is now regarded as main yardstick in global competitions, Vahidi said.

IranĖˆs defense ministry inspires world Muslims and oppressed nations, he said, adding that the ministry should take the lead in scientific fields in the world.

Iran has attained significant success in other defense sectors which will be made known to public in due time, Vahidi said.
