President Hassan Rouhani made the remark in a speech on Thursday in Tehran throughout the unveiling of the Bavar-373, a long-range surface-to-air missile system that he described as an enchancment to the Russian S-300.
Rouhani stated that “now that our enemies don’t settle for logic, we can’t reply with logic.”

He added: “When the enemy launches a missile towards us, we can’t give a speech and say: ‘Mr. Rocket, please don’t hit our nation and our harmless folks. Rocket-launching sir, in the event you can please hit a button and self-destroy the missile within the air.’”
Iran has developed a homegrown defence business since 1992.
