Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri warned against the Israeli regime’s seditious plots in the region, threatening decisive response to any miscalculation by the Israeli enemy.
“The presence of the Zionists disturbs the security of the region,” Major General Baqeri said on Thursday, addressing a ceremony in Tehran to mark the Sacred Defense Week.
He added that the Iranian Armed Forces are monitoring all the movements of the Israeli regime there.
“If we feel a threat, we will deal with the elements of the Zionist regime and their supporters simultaneously,” the high-ranking Iranian military official pointed out as quoted by Tasnim news agency.
He emphasized that the Iranian Armed Forces would give a decisive response to any act of miscalculation by the enemies.
“We want a region free from threats and full of friendship and cooperation in West Asia. The US and the Zionist regime pose a threat to regional security and we hope to have a future without these threats,” the top commander said.
‘Iran Won’t Tolerate Changes in Region’
Elsewhere in his remarks, he warned that the Islamic Republic will not tolerate any change in regional borders, urging neighboring Azerbaijan and Armenia to settle their border dispute peacefully.
“As we have repeatedly announced, we will not tolerate any changes in the borders of the region and we recommend the two countries of Azerbaijan and Armenia to solve their problems through peaceful channels and dialog,” Major General Baqeri said.
He added that Iran opposed war and conflicts in the region and would not remain silent in the face of them.
The latest conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia erupted on September 13, minutes after a ceasefire agreement between the two countries came into force.
