Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said on Tuesday that Iran is a “superior power” in the region.
Salami’s remarks came a day after US President Donald Trump said he was not seeking regime change in Iran following moves to beef up US forces in the Middle East, and that a new deal on Iran’s nuclear program was possible.
“We have been able to…empty the enemy’s capacity for war. You see the decline and crash of the enemies’ speech,” the commander said, apparently alluding to Trump’s remarks during a visit to Japan.
Today, Iran is the superior power in the region and is not afraid of the enemies’ threats, he added.
Salami noted that Iran has defeated the enemy’s psychological warfare and the enemy has used its full capacity to confront Iran.
“This is our final stage of confrontation with the enemy,” he highlighted, adding that Iran is the final victor and will continue its development path with greater speed than ever.
