February 11, 2019

TEHRAN – Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, the Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff, said on Sunday the enemies of the Islamic Republic have intensified their effort to spread Iranophobia with the purpose of signing arms deals with Middle Eastern countries.

Speaking to reporters, Baqeri stated that the Islamic Republic has never had a covetous eye on any regional country over the past four decades, but has maintained advisory presence in regional countries that have been facing terrorist attacks, Press TV reported.

“We will continue our presence in those countries as long as they want and will leave them whenever they do not want [Iran’s presence],” he remarked.
