Major General Mohammad Bagheri, Chief of Staff of Armed Forces of Iran
[Major General Mohammad Bagheri, Chief of Staff of Armed Forces of Iran, slams regional countries for asking Americans to come to the region to create security. The Islamic Republic is accused of destabilizing the region.]
Major General Mohammad Bagheri: Very good and considerable security exists in the Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, thanks to efforts of forces of Islamic Republic who secure the Gulf and Strait of Hormuz. All oil tankers and commercial vessels are peacefully trafficking. Some southern countries invite foreigners to come to the region, and, in the name of security, they create problems. These days we can see that having hopes for Americans will result in what happened in Syria. They came and created insecurity in Syria for 8 years. And eventually, they are exiting Syria with humiliation.
