Military official: Iran’s powerful PG presence is source of hope for region

Qum, Senior spokesman of the armed forces General Abolfazl Shekarchi says powerful presence of Iran in the Persian Gulf is source of hope for regional countries.

Shekarchi made the remarks in ceremony here on Thursday to commemorate the Reporter Day.

He said, 'Iran is the main power in the region and the Persian Gulf but has always used its domination in favor of security of the countries present in the sensitive part of the world.'

Iran does not serve as a threat to the regional countries, rather it guarantees their security and it has always protected the world oppressed against the arrogant powers, he added.

He then noted that enemies use their media to tarnish realities, thus charging Iran of interfering in internal affairs of other countries, whereas all the world freedom lovers are under pressure of their interferences.
