Iran main regional player: Senior military official

Tehran, Feb 6, IRNA – The Islamic Republic of Iran enjoys a significant role as the 'main player' in the region, Deputy Commander of the Islamic Republic Army for Coordination Affairs said here on Wednesday.

Addressing a press conference on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of victory of Iran's Islamic Revolution, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said no county can take a measure in the region without the Islamic Republic of Iran's presence or decision.

'In the past 40 years,' Sayyari noted, 'the enemies did their best to hit the country, but all of their plots have been foiled thanks to the great Islamic Republic's achievements in different arenas.'

During the early days of victory of the Islamic Revolution and even before that, the enemies always threatened Iran, the military official said.

As they saw their hands off the illegal interests they had before in Iran, the enemies tried to defeat the Islamic Revolution and return to the country.

Appreciating the Islamic Republic of Iran achievement, he added such accomplishments have played a pivotal role in safeguarding the country's dignity and territorial integrity.

Iran enjoys a great status in the world, the senior military official said, adding that no one could deny the country's great position.

Sayyari said Iran has become a regional power and an inspiring country for freedom-seekers of the world.
