Iran Key to Persian Gulf Security: Commander

“Without the presence of Iran as an indisputable regional power, all scenarios and plans to take security measures in the Persian Gulf lack legitimacy… and will never result in averting extra-regional threats and establishing sustainable security,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said on Friday.

He criticized attempts by some countries to sign security pacts in the Persian Gulf without regard for Iran's strategic position, and said that such efforts are carried out under the influence of the United States.

The Iranian military commander said major world powers by hiding their evil intentions deceive Persian Gulf littoral states and encourage them to purchase modern, expensive military equipment such as US-made warships

“It is evident that such attempts are aimed at sowing discord and creating tension in regional Muslim states and perhaps to promote the Iranophobia scenario so as to make huge economic profits …,” Maj. Gen. Firouzabadi noted.

He pointed to the lack of trust among regional countries and said the refusal of some of these states to sign regional security pacts and join extra-regional powers to provide their security creates tension in the region and intensifies the lack of trust.

Maj. Gen. Firouzabadi said cultural and religious commonalities, basic economic cooperation, guaranteeing the world's energy security, and resolving disputes among regional states are factors that can help secure a security-defense pact in the region.
