Iranian President Hassan Rohani said Friday that his country would strengthen its military and ballistic capabilities despite criticism from the United States and France during a parade marking the outbreak of the Iraq-Iran war in 1980.

“Whether you want it or not, we will strengthen our military capabilities, necessary in terms of deterrence … To defend our homeland we will not ask anyone for permission,” he said in a live speech by state television.
