The US government is aware that while the Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved a good level of defensive deterrence by relying on its domestic capabilities to challenge the most advanced US military products, with the lifting of these sanctions and the purchase of modern weapons, this deterrent will certainly be doubled.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has recently expressed concern over the end of Iran’s arms sanctions next year, saying that countries such as Russia and China would be able to sell advanced weapons to Iran, and that this country would be free to sell weapons to anyone. This will trigger a new arms race in West Asia.

Pompeo should be pointed on this issue in his remarks that there has been speculation for years about the purchase of weapons such as India’s SU 30 fighter jet or the S400 defense system from Russia by Iran, but the Islamic Republic of Iran has been banned from purchasing heavy weapons because of the arms sanctions imposed by UN Security Council Resolution 1929, which was endorsed by resolution 2231.

The US government is aware that while the Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved a good level of defensive deterrence by relying on its domestic capabilities to challenge the most advanced US military products, with the lifting of these sanctions and the purchase of modern weapons, this deterrent will certainly be doubled.

Also, Pompeo has also expressed concern about the start of an arms race in West Asia. But it has been years since the US allies in the region, such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Israel, have begun the race with heavy weapons purchases from the US and other western and eastern nations.

For example, Saudi Arabia alone has increased its arms imports by 192% over the years 2014 to 2019 and has become the world’s largest importer of weapons. Whereas Iran has always stated in its declarative and action policies that it does not seek to wage war in the region and merely seeks to develop its deterrence power.

The evidence of the author’s claim is that the leader of the Iranian revolution in his famous edict has declared the manufacture of nuclear weapons as forbidden, or Mohammad Javad Zarif announced in a press interview in Japan at the height of talks of JCPOA that the Islamic Republic of Iran is expanding its defense capabilities so that no one else, like Saddam, emerges who wants to endanger the security of the Iranian people and the region, and that the Iranian people do not want to be attacked again by a mad dictator with mass destruction weapons. And these powerful stances indicate that Iran’s military capability is focused on an asymmetric defense strategy that is based on a defensive weapons pillar.

On the other hand, Pompeo’s concerns about the sale of Iranian weapons to other countries can be analyzed from the perspective that the successful design and implementation of defensive systems by the Iranian military industries has made other countries interested in these defense systems.

By standing on the cutting edge of defense technology, Iran has reached a level of capability that today it can design and implement systems such as 3rd Khordad, Tabas and Bavar-373 that can attract good target markets and enhance Iran’s strategic depth.

However, when Iran’s defense complex succeeded in capturing high-tech US military kings and even the talk of intercepting and destroying ultra-advanced American drones indicates Iran’s high power in this part of the chessboard of international equations, and this indigenous ability is extremely frightening for Americans.

In addition to that if assuming that China or Russia refuses to sell weapons to Iran because of their political relations with the United States, countries such as Pakistan, India, North Korea, Brazil and even Sweden are expected to fulfill Iran’s need of weapons after the deadline of weapons sanctions.
