In the presence of Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri and Tajikistan's Defense Minister Sherali Mirzo, the Ababil 2 UAV production factory was launched in the Tajik city of Dushanbe.
This plant was inaugurated in the presence of a group of Iranian and Tajik authorities in order to boost and deepen cooperative defense and military cooperation between the two nations.
General Bagheri stated that the Islamic Republic of Iran was able to develop greatly in all military and defense areas, particularly drone manufacturing.
"Today, we are in a position where we, in addition to meeting domestic needs, can export military equipment to allied and friendly countries in order to increase security and lasting peace," he said.
He hailed the inauguration of the Ababil 2 facility in Tajikistan as a watershed moment in Iran-Tajikistan military collaboration, saying that further cooperation and contact at all levels of military defense between the two nations is ongoing.
The Tajik Air Force commander and staff were presented with the symbolic key to the factory's opening and the certificate of completion of the training course at the end of the inauguration event.
General Bagheri also met with Colonel General Saimumin Yatimov, Chairman of the State Committee for National Security (SCNS), to discuss improving defense and military capabilities in order to improve collaboration along Iran-Tajikistan shared borders, as well as regional concerns.
The two nations emphasized the importance of ongoing discussions, consultations, and specialist meetings on regional and inter-regional problems.
