Iran’s Defense Minister, Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan (pictued right) rarely gives interviews to foreign journalists.
However, when he was in Moscow last month, he gave a 25 minute interview to Russia Today.
General Dehghan is a former IRGC man. In fact he was an IRGC commander based in Beirut in 1983, the same year that the US marine barracks was attacked in Beirut and 241 people were killed. Some have linked him to this attack.
This is a worthwhile interview to watch, especially if you are interested in Iran – Russia relations.
