Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi has said the US and Zionist regime are devising new plots in the region.

Iran Press/Iran News: Top military aide to the Iranian Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi also said that  regional countries, especially the Resistance Axis, should monitor the region’s developments with vigilance.

Top military aide to the Iranian Leader made the remarks in Jask Port, Hormozgan province, on Tuesday, Iran Press reported.

Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi added: "Saudi Arabia and some other Persian Gulf countries have bought 10 times more weapons than Iran in the past 10 years, but this will not lead to victory in war." 

Rahim Safavi noted: “If that was the case, Saudi Arabia should have gained victory in Yemen. But during the last 45 months, they have gained the least possible political and military achievements.”

Elsewhere, touching upon the geopolitical importance of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, Safavi speculated that countries such as India, China and Russia will increase their presence in this region.

Major General Safavi added that India and China will do this to satisfy their need for oil and gas and the latter to counter the United States.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, with 2,200 km of coastline in the Sea of Oman and the Persian Gulf, and as a stable and powerful state, needs to develop its relations with these countries on the basis of national interests and security, Safavi said.

The top military aide to the Iranian Leader concluded by saying: "Iran should secure its permanent membership in Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) through negotiating with China and Russia, otherwise, it should pull out from the bloc."  101/201/211
