Iran’s Foreign Ministry underlined that the country would not adopt the policy of appeasement when it comes to its security and the fight against terrorism.
A day after Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) announced it had launched a missile attack on terrorists in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi underscored that Iran would show no tolerance toward anybody when it comes to its security and combating the terrorists and anti-Iranian hostile elements.
“This was not and is not Iran’s favorite option. But the terrorist moves, particularly the killing of the brave Iranian border guards and soldiers, made the Iranian Armed Forces take a retaliatory, preventive and even preemptive action, based on authentic information that has been received,” Tasnim news agency quoted the Iranian diplomat as saying.
Qassemi meanwhile, expresses hope for lasting security and stability along Iran-Iraq borders.
