TEHRAN, Dec. 19 (Press Shia) – Today the dominance of Iran in the Middle East is remarkable, said Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, the Chief of Staff of Iranian Armed Forces on Tuesday.

“If there were no armed forces at the time of the earthquake, certainly more problems would have occurred to the people of Kermanshah province,” said the Chief of Staff of Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri on Tuesday.

According to the Public Relations Department of Iranian Army, Mr. Bagheri thanked the timely, useful and effective presence of the Army during the recent earthquake in Kermanshah province. He made the remarks while delivering a speech at the meeting of the Army commanders.

“The enemies of the Islamic Revolution use every opportunity to divide the Iranian armed forces, but the armed forces and the proud Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran, by their tact and control, have prevented any void to occur so that they are at the height of unity and unanimity. The policy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces is to strengthen the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army,” reassured the Iranian commander.

Mr. Bagheri added that the theme of “Revolutionary Army” for the senior military commanders conference is a very correct choice that illustrates the intelligence and military command at this time, as well as attention to the command of the commander-in-chief (the Iranian Leader) in this regard.

The Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Bagheri continued to address the critical situation in the West Asia region and said, “Today, we have come through a hard time fighting the Takfirist enemies, and we have succeeded in eradicating the enemies and aberrant groups from the region. But this is not the end, and certainly our enemies are not idle and they would create another alliance, as we have seen, to counter the influence of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region.”

“The influence of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the West Asian has jeopardized the position of the enemies of Islam and the Revolution, so they want to counter this influence through the sedition in the Islamic world, and unfortunately, some of the countries of the region have aligned the enemies spending hundreds of billions of dollars for their causes,” he added.

The senior commander stated that today the influence of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region is very huge, added, “plots of enemies to counter the Islamic Republic of Iran does not stop and end, and after the dissolution of Takfirist groups, other conspiracies, including the pronouncementof al-Qods as the capital of the fake Zionist regime, but God willingly all of these conspiracies will also fail.”
