Iran's Def. Min. in reaction to interventionist statements by the French DM:
Western versions of regional security, new colonial methods
Iranian Defense Minister described Western versions of regional security as irresponsible and new colonial methods.
Iran Press/ Iran news: "Interventions by the West will make the region's security more complicated," Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said on Monday, slamming the interventionist statements by the French Defense Minister over security in the West Asian region.
"Western nations, including the United States, only tried to manage terrorist groups of West Asian region in their favor, however, these terrorists have been defeated by the armed forces and the people of Iraq and Syria," said Hatami.
At the Manama conference on November 23, the French Defence Minister Florence Parly criticized the US over what she described as unanswered attacks in recent months threatening the Persian Gulf such as the shooting down of the US drone and the attack on Saudi oil facilities.
