Ashtiani stated that the broad extensive military presence of various powers in the region has complicated the security situation in the region and emphasized, "The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the presence of foreign forces will not help the security in the region and we believe as we have emphasized many times that the regional security could be obtained only through the cooperation of all the countries in the region."
