Iran and Iraq have established long-standing and amicable relations with each other, which have been a thorn in the eyes of Global Arrogance, the Zionist regime and also reactionary Arab countries in the region, he added.
By acquiring world’s latest technology in manufacturing various types of radar systems, command centers and control of ground-to-air missile systems as well as electronic warfare equipment, Iran’s aerospace forces are ready to help Iraqi side boost its defense capabilities, Brig.
