Responsibility for Persian Gulf security rests with regional countries

Iran and other Persian Gulf countries are solely responsible for regional security, Deputy Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Ali Fadavi said, as cited by the Fars news agency.

“Persian Gulf security is the responsibility of Iran and other countries of the region,” he said. “No one but us is up to this task,” Fadavi added.

According to the IRGC deputy chief, “experience shows that the US presence in the region doesn’t help resolve security issues but creates new problems.” “Iran is strong enough to ensure regional stability,” he added.
