    Breaking: IRGC unveils underground missile base in Persian Gulf

    TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iran has unveiled an underground base for “strategic missiles” on its Gulf coastline, according to state media. Video broadcast by state media Friday showed the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards, Chief-Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards General Hossein Salami, touring what appears to be a long underground tunnel lined with missiles and missile launchers.

    In his visit to the missile base, General Salami was accompanied by IRGC Navy Commander Brigadier General Alireza Tangsiri. Speaking on the sidelines of the visit to the units and missile systems deployed in the base, General Salami the base is one of the several bases housing the Navy’s strategic missiles.

    “These missiles have ranges of hundreds of kilometers, enjoy pinpoint accuracy and huge destruction power, and can overcome the enemy’s electronic warfare equipment. He said the IRGC Navy’s missiles are among the world’s most advanced missiles used in coast-to-sea, air-to-air, air-to-sea, and sea-to-air battles. He made it clear that the country is going to reinforce its power in order to defend its territorial integrity, IFP reported.

    Iran’s ballistic missile arsenal is one of the flashpoints in Tehran’s long-running disputes with its Arab neighbors and the United States. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Arab countries have called for the curbing of Iran’s ballistic weapons, but Iran’s leaders have repeatedly said the arsenal is not up for negotiation.
    On Monday, Tehran announced it had resumed enriching uranium to 20% purity, far beyond the limits laid out in the 2015 nuclear deal, which US President Donald Trump walked away from in 2018.
    US President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to reinstate the deal after he takes office on January 20. His national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, told CNN on Sunday that the incoming administration would also seek a “follow-on negotiation” over Iran’s ballistic missile capabilities.
    “Our view is that ballistic missiles, and Iran’s ballistic missile program, has to be on the table as part of that follow-on negotiation,” Sullivan said, adding the Biden administration would seek to bring some of Iran’s regional partners to the table.
    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Friday that his country was not in a rush to rejoin the nuclear deal and argued that the sanctions against Tehran must be lifted regardless of whether the US rejoins the pact. He also said he did not trust coronavirus vaccines produced by the Western countries and called on officials to prohibit them from entering the country. “We must not import (Covid-19) vaccine from the US, the UK, or even France. I do not trust them,”
