Iran Press/Iran News: Iran's Army Chief said foreign forces should leave the region and Iran is not interested in making any war, but all forces are ready for defense, Iran press reported.

"We are not interested in making fire in the region, but some may mistaken our recommendations, they should notice that we are not afraid of any fire," the commander noted.

He further reiterated that Iran has never sought or started a war, but stands firm for defense.

"Saudis had a role in the recent acts of sabotage in Baghdad," the commander added.

"Our enemies are pretending to be friends, but in reality, they are targeting each other, General Mousavi continued.

"If one day documentations could be published, it will be identified that Saudis wanted to bother UAE because they were not useful enough for them," he said.

"We hope that the heads of the region follow Iran's recommendations and start to play the role in an honored way and put an end to being in service of others." Major General Mousavi said.

Tehran has said it will not be the initiator of any war, but reserves the right to self-defense and will give a crushing response to any act of aggression.104/209
