The letter read, "Unfortunately, for the first time in ten years, the secretariat of the Supreme National Security Council has refused to grant permission for holding the annual major missile exercise of the armed forces and the necessary orders for allocating funds for the emergency plans of the armed forces have not been issued."

"It is necessary for the president to support the armed forces more seriously so that they can expand their military capabilities and hold military exercises," the letter wrote.

In a separate letter, lawmakers asked Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif why he does not support the country's defensive progress and why foreign experts have not been allowed to travel to Iran to help develop the country's missile capability.
