TEHRAN – “The Iranian military forces create stability not only for Iran but the whole region,” Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Monday.

Larijani made the remarks in an address to a number of military forces in the southern province of Bushehr, where he said there is no need for extra-regional interference in the Middle East since “Muslim countries can provide the security of the region themselves,” the Mehr news agency reported.

Larijani also lauded the deterrence power of the Iranian armed forces, which he said “displays the might of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

He stated that despite the instability of most regional countries, particularly Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Libya, Iran enjoys a favorable stability thanks to the country’s armed forces.

 ------ Larijani calls for ‘economic uprising’ in Iran

The parliament speaker also commented on the financial status of the country, calling for an “economic uprising”. 

“Currently, we are through some inflation-related problems. The administration and the parliament are now spending a great deal of time on this issue,” Larijani said, adding, “The remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution concerning ‘resistance economy’ are very important. He [the Leader] has pointed out that the economy should be based on production.”

----- Psychological, defensive security required for economic development

Larijani also said two main principles of “psychological and defensive security” are essentially required for the economy and investment to flourish in the country. 

“Politicians and media are in charge of maintaining psychological security in the country; whereas, the armed forces are responsible for defensive security,” Larijani stated.
