Speaking to Tasnim News Agency on Saturday, the Navy commander added the strength and decisiveness of Iran’s response to threats and hostile measures will make the aggressors regret their moves.
Describing the Iranian Navy as a strategic force that protects the country’s territorial waters, Rear Admiral Irani said the country’s naval forces work incessantly to ensure the maritime security.
In comments last month, the commander reaffirmed Iran’s commitment to countering hostile actions aimed at compromising security across the region.
He gave the assurance that Iran will never allow other countries to intend to jeopardize regional security and calm in a belligerent manner.
Highlighting the Islamic Republic’s activities to ensure the maritime security as a sovereign state, the Navy chief said collaboration among countries’ armed forces, such as the military competitions held in Iran, sends a message that free nations will vigorously fight off and humiliate the enemies.
