Tehran (IP) - Chief of Iran's Presidential Staff Mahmoud Vaezi said the US makes every effort to bold Iran as to be a threat to the region in order to decrease the threat posed by the Zionist regime there.

Iran Press/Iran news: In an exclusive interview with Iran Press on the US official's claim that Iran is considered as the biggest threat in the region, Mahmoud Vaezi said: "Iran is located in the Middle East region. Its collaboration with neighbors will secure the nations of the region, while the question raised here is what does the US do from thousands of kilometers away from the region?"

Earlier, the US National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien claimed during a visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that Iran poses the biggest threat in the region.

Speaking on the sidelines of today's cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Vaezi said: "The countries, governments, and nations in the region are mature enough and aware of how to treat with each other, and they are in no need of a guardian to advise them what is to their benefit and what is a threat to them."

"The US has a very bad position nowadays that it is sticking to make public the hidden negotiations between the UAE and the Zionist regime," said the Iranian official. "The US aims at taking advantage of such a condition, and it has made a great deal of publicization, one of which sending a delegation to the UAE."
