“Our security and defense is the result of the power that our country has achieved in a way that military threats and aggression against us are not within sight” General Rahim Safavi told reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony in Tehran on Wednesday.
However, the top military advisor added that the Iranian Armed Forces always need to be prepared and should not underestimate the trans-regional enemies.
“Just because Iran is the first influential power in the equations of the West Asian region, our defense power in this region is a great and influential power in the security defense equations,” the general added.
“Both our nation and our Armed Forces have become so powerful that none of the trans-regional powers, including the US, can take any action against this power,” he also underscored.
Meanwhile, General Rahim Safavi noted that “the situation in Iran is different from those of Afghanistan and Iraq”.
“Today, we have gained so much power in the maritime field that our strategic Navy can cross the Atlantic to reach the Russian port of St. Petersburg, while the US had told the West African countries not to provide any port or even medical services to the Iranian fleet, according to the Iranian generals. This successful maneuver was unimaginable to the Americans,” he said.
In relevant remarks in August, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami underlined that Iran’s response to the threats waged by enemies against the country will be devastating and will make them feel regret.
“We warn them (enemies) to learn from the past and know that our response to enemies’ threats will be more destructive and regrettable,” General Salami said
“Ever since the Islamic Republic of Iran was established successfully, enemies left no stone unturned and made their utmost efforts to take advantage of events that sometimes took place inside the country in the fields of water or electricity shortages and similar issues.”
“We are in the process of transferring the government which differs from the power transfer that takes place in the United States, and this transition of government in Iran is dignified, healthy and peaceful, and we are going through the political process,” General Salami added.
