"Iran had decided to be the best in the world in various fields, and we are pioneers both in nanotechnologies as well as in many other fields of science," the IRGC chief commander pointed.

"Not only in military technology, but also in non-military technologies, namely coronavirus vaccine, Iran is among the most successful ones," he highlighted.
