US seeks to create “security dilemma” in West Asia

TEHRAN, Apr. 30 (MNA) – In reaction to US secretary of state's recent trip to the region, IRGC deputy commander said the US strategy is creating a “security dilemma” in line with its desire for domination over the Arab countries.

Brigadier General Hossein Salami made the remarks on the sidelines of the Persian Gulf National Day which was held at Supreme National Defense University in Tehran this morning.

Referring to the new US secretary of state Mike Pompeo's visit to Saudi Arabia and the West Asia region, Brigadier General Salami said “the strategy that the United State is pursuing in the West Asia and the Persian Gulf region is creating a security dilemma and balance of power.”

He explained that the Unites States seeks to continue its domination over the Arab states which requires constant presence in the Persian Gulf states and West Asia region, adding that in that “security dilemma,” Iran is considered a threat and a sponsor of terrorism, while the world knows that Iran is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism.

In another part of his remarks. Salami pointed to the issue of Iran’s missiles, saying that the missiles form the main part of Iran’s deterrent power, stressing that Iran will never accept to give up its deterrent capabilities.
