Ex-IRGC chief: Non-aggression pact between Iran, neighbors can boost regional trust

A former chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) reflects on the potential for conclusion of a “non-aggression pact” between Iran and its neighboring states, saying such an agreement can promote regional trust and end security concerns.

Such an agreement “can boost regional trust and prevent creation of a security conundrum,” said Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, a top military adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

The official was addressing a Tuesday meeting held at Iran’s Foreign Ministry with the aim of addressing the country’s interactions with its neighbors.

Safavi underlined the necessity of an increase in the Islamic Republic’s ability to coordinate exchange and analysis of strategic data together with its regional partners.

By availing itself of such strategic information, the country can also “develop a correct perspective of the enemies’ strategies concerning our region,” he said.

In this context, the official advised development of a common “understanding of intelligence” with the regional countries.

Such common ground, he said, would help the country devise a comprehensive plan for the development of all-out political, economic, and cultural ties with those states within a “win-win framework.”
