Iran urges common regional front in PG
While the West seeks to portray Iran as a regional threat, a top official with Iran’s Armed Forces calls for the establishment of a common front in the region.
Speaking on the National Day of the Persian Gulf on Wednesday, Brigadier General Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri said should littoral states form a security alliance they will successfully expel foreign forces from the region.
The deputy head of Iran’s Armed Forces Headquarters condemned a US and Israeli plot to portray Iran as a threat to the region, further explaining that the presence and interference of foreign forces in the region — and in the Persian Gulf in particular — were the main causes of regional insecurity.
“Major powers resort to every possible means to dominate the region,” Jazayeri warned.
He, however, went on to say that world powers were facing “serious challenges and various obstacles” in the region as they had “no proper understanding of the geo-economics and geo-strategic features of the region.”
Jazayeri said in order to preserve the security of the Persian Gulf, all regional states should come together and “take matters into their own hands.”
