Parl. speaker: Foreign presence in region danger to security

TEHRAN (ICANA) _ Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf says the presence of foreign military forces has endangered Persian Gulf, expressing hope that regional countries will join hands in order to expel outsiders from the Persian Gulf region.

Addressing a virtual conference dubbed “Persian Gulf is our home” which was hosted by Supreme National Defense University in Tehran on Wednesday, Ghalibaf attributed the security gap between the north and south of the Persian Gulf to the presence of American troops.
The top Iranian parliamentarian pointed to the Americans are the “main source of insecurity” in the region since they are there to bring about and take control of many developments and trends that benefit them.
Besides causing insecurity, Ghalibaf added, the presence of foreign military forces “leads to the destruction of economic opportunities in the region and beyond.”
“The United States wants to gain influence over the region and the global economy through presence in the Persian Gulf. It also wants to exercise power even on the European powers in a bid to maintain the security of the Zionist regime in this sensitive region, which plays a very important role in the global energy supply and serves as the engine that propels the economic sector forward,” he added.
However, Ghalibaf noted, a strong and capable Iran has shown in practice that it will never allow the US to have influence in the north of the Persian Gulf.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran cut off their hands from the north of the Persian Gulf. We hope that regional countries will together rid them of their foothold in the region and celebrate a day when foreign troops are expelled from the Persian Gulf.”
