Iran has no limit to stage military exercises: Dehqan

May 7, 2016

TEHRAN - Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said on Saturday that Iran has no limit to stage military exercises.

The remarks by Dehghan came in reaction to a bill proposed recently by U.S. Republican congressman Randy Forbes that called for measures against Iran’s military drills in the Persian Gulf.  

Iran has the right to promote its defense capability, the minister said.

Dehqan also said Saudi Arabia, the U.S. and some other extra regional countries have been making efforts to undermine security in the Middle East but blame Iran for the insecurity. 

Despite these moves Iran is the source of stability and security in the region, he added.
