The strengthening of Iran's defence power is aimed to avert possibility of war against it, Khamenei added, Xinhua reported citing the Iranian state TV.

"In order to impede war and put an end to the threats, one has to become strong," he explained.

Khamenei made the remarks during his meeting with Iranian Air Force commanders and personnel in the capital Tehran.
