Iran: We Will Continue to Arm Any Group Fighting Against US

No wonder Obama is pushing this deal so hard.
(Clarion Project) Iran’s defense minister reiterated the official Iranian position that, even after the nuclear agreement is enacted, Iran will continue to provide arms, technology and other support to any group fighting the United States.

Speaking on Lebanese television earlier this month (see video below), Minister of Defense Hossein Dehghan said, “I officially declare that under no circumstances will we refrain from providing material and moral support to Hezbollah, or to any group of the resistance to the U.S. and Israel. We say this loud and clear. We have declared this officially and we intend to continue on this path.”

Although Dehghan insisted Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah do not need Iran to supply them with rockets and other arms since they now have the capability to produce weapons themselves, he said Iran would, nevertheless, continue to support them.
