IRGC Chief Mocks US Humiliating Defeats in West Asia
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said the Americans have left West Asia in disgrace and have no more room to operate in the region.
The senior commander stated on Thursday that enemies will no longer have a place in the West Asia region as they escaped "in humiliation" due to sacrifices made by martyrs.
“We have crushed the enemies’ bones in all battles. As you can see, they fled the region in humiliation and from now on, they will not have a room in this region,” Maj. Gen. Salami stressed.
Iranian officials say foreign intervention in the West Asian region would further complicate the situation. They stress that stability and security in the region can be achieved through cooperation among the regional states and in absence of outsiders, and the path of resolving problems runs through the regional countries' capitals, not through seeking recourse to extra-regional forces.
Eslwhere in his remarks, the top commander noted that Iran completely knows the enemies of the Iranian nation and is familiar with their policies and methods.
“We know what the enemies want as well as the depth of their intentions. They want to diminish the divine light…, but they are gravely mistaken as all their conspiracies will definitely fail,” he added.
In mid-May, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri underlined that signs of the decline of the US clout are visible more than ever before, and underscored that regional countries are definitely willing to have convergence and they will overcome artificial differences that are the root-cause of divergence among them.
“Today, many pundits maintain that the world is moving towards the establishment of a new order. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the United States declared a unipolar order and tried hard to establish it, but failed,” he stressed, pointing to the formation of a new world order.
Stressing that one of the features of the new order is that it would be region-based, the top general stated, “The hegemony arising from the unjust world system has become a pathological behavior for some powers … but the signs of the decline of the US power have been conspicuous for a long time, and we are sure that the new world order will not be based on unipolar hegemony.” (READ MORE)
Iranian military officials have stressed that Washington has weakened to the extent that it plays no role in the West Asia region’s geopolitical landscape. They stated that Iran has defeated the US which enjoyed unrivalled hegemony in the region and the whole world before the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but after the revolution they were forced to flee the region.
Officials in Iran say Washington cannot go ahead with its plan in the West Asia region as its schemes are doomed to fail, and add that Iran plays a key role in the political decisions of the United States and the fate of the White House is affected by Tehran's attitude.

Officials in Tehran have stressed that the Iranian nation's progress has made it stronger compared to the past, while the enemies have grown weaker.
Tehran has repeatedly cautioned that any plan aimed at increasing US presence in the Middle East will only foment insecurity and instability and spread terrorism.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underlined the necessity for the settlement of the crises and problems in the region through collective cooperation among the regional states, and underscored that the presence of foreigners is harmful. Tehran has urged the neighboring countries to be extremely vigilant about any US-Israeli plan that clearly aims to disturb the stability and order of the region.
