In a series of tweets published on the Twitter page of Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader also said that the Persian Gulf belongs to the nations living there, and those are the ones responsible for ensuring its security.
“Iran with its long coastlines has a key role in keeping the security of this region. By God’s grace we will do our part. This is our historical, geographical and regional duty,” said one the tweets, which were posted on the occasion of the National Persian Gulf Day.

The Leader also said that a “wise and rational collective policy” in favor of the people of the region cannot be achieved while foreign forces are present in the Persian Gulf.
The #PersianGulf region can be managed by a wise and rational collective policy that benefits all Persian Gulf countries. The factor that threatens such a proper, wise move is the presence of foreign forces in the region.
The #PersianGulf is our home & the place for the presence of the great #IranianNation. The shores of the Persian Gulf & much of the Gulf of Oman, belong to this nation, & it should be present there. It should demonstrate its power. We’re a powerful nation with a great history.
The remarks came against the backdrop of Washington’s incessant acts of military adventurism in the Persian Gulf region.
The 10th day of Ordibehesht (April 29) – the second month on the Iranian calendar, which fell on April 29 this year – has been designated as the Persian Gulf National Day to commemorate not only the historical victory of the Iranian forces against the trespassers in the southern waters but also to remind all that the true name of the Persian Gulf will remain so forever.
