Negotiating Is Enemies’ Tactics to Surrender Iran
IRAN NEWS NATIONAL DESK
TEHRAN – The Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces slammed the enemy’s bid for negotiations with Iran as a tactic to force the Islamic Republic to surrender to the U.S.
Addressing a videoconference on civil defense on Monday, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri dismissed the idea of negotiations with the US as a nonstarter.
“The enemy’s purpose is to make the Iranian nation cave in to the strategies and polices imposed by the U.S.,” the general warned.
“They want to bring Iran to the negotiating table, but the result of such negotiations has been already determined, and that is Iran’s surrender to the U.S.,” Major General Baqeri added.
The top commander underscored that capitulation runs completely counter to the goals of the Islamic Republic.
He then highlighted the significant position of Southwest Asia in determining the world leadership.
Referring to the geopolitical and geostrategic theories, which term some points in the world as “geopolitical heartlands and pivots,” the top commander said, “Today, there is no doubt that the pyramid of world power in Southwest Asia determines world supremacy and leadership.”
“Any power that can dominate this region will stand at the top of this pyramid,” he added.
Baqeri noted, “The Islamic Revolution was formed [in 1979] in an extremely sensitive region, and it has been following its divine goals and ideals and valuable mottos, such as revealing the role of external domination, supporting the oppressed and self-reliance of the Iranian nation.”
Therefore, he added, it is normal that the country is facing multiple threats on its path by those trying to dominate the region.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran, without any expectation of interest from neighbors, has relied solely on its religious and revolutionary principles to seek to take control of its own affairs and reach self-reliance.”
He underlined the country’s undisputed will to continue the path of development, stressing that no threat can ever stop the Iranian nation from realizing such a goal.
Baqeri said that enemies’ threats are no more military in nature but rather in cyber, technology, and chemical ones so Iran’s Civil Defense must be fully ready to identify and counter them.
He added that it is not clear whether the coronavirus, which Iran and the world are challenging with, is a threat or a natural phenomenon to fight with.
Iran’s Civil Defense Organization is a place to cooperate and connect the organizations, government, and armed forces altogether.
He noted that Civil Defense helps Armed Forces against enemies’ threats which are changing continuously.
