“Our Armed Forces enjoy the experiences of 8 years of Sacred Defense (Iraqi-imposed war against Iran in 1980s) and they monitor the US completely in a way that we have intelligence superiority over the US and monitor the US moves from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean,” Rahim Safavi said in an interview with the state TV on Monday night.
He noted that Iran has attained a deep defense strategy, saying, “We have extended our defense borders to the Mediterranean from the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean.”
Rahim Safavi also advised the US to take Lebanese resistance group’s Leader Seyed Hassan Nasrallah’s warning against any wrong move in the region seriously.
In similar comments on Friday, Rahim Safavi had also warned the US against any act of aggression against Iran, reminding that as Hezbollah Leader said any move against Tehran would throw the whole region in a great turmoil.
Rahim Safavi warned his country’s regional and trans-regional enemies that any aggression against Iran or any anti-Iranian move would have serious repercussions for the whole region.
He added that Iran seeks peace and stability in the region and defends the rights of all the Islamic nations while it wants war with no countries.
“The Islamic Republic has turned into a major and invincible power in West Asia and if the Americans are planning any plots in the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea or the Indian Ocean, Iran will not leave them unanswered,” he added.
“US’ policies in West Asia and its hegemony are defeated as the world is moving towards multilateralism,” Rahim Safavi said.
