TEHRAN (Iran News) – Last week, the Middle East saw the presence of U.S. President Joe Biden in the region amid media and political hype which was aimed at creating Iranophobia and stepping up pressure on the Islamic Republic of Iran to accept the U.S. and its allies’ excessive demands but in practice it was proved that Iranophobia does not work any longer and all U.S. efforts have been ineffective.
Reacting to the remarks and statements in the Israel and Jeddah of Saudi Arabia, countries took different stances which show that the U.S. and Zionist efforts to spread Iranophobia for justifying their presence in the region have been ineffective.
Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said the United States is trying to foment tension and crisis in the West Asia region by resorting to its policy of Iranophobia.
Nasser Kan’ani made the remarks in reaction to the latest remarks by Biden, who accused Iran of destabilizing activities in the West Asia region during an address to a summit of regional Arab states in the Saudi city of Jeddah on Saturday.
“Around the world, we’re seeing efforts to undermine the rules-based order: with China’s increasingly coercive actions in the Indo-Pacific and beyond; with Russia’s brutal and unprovoked war against its neighboring Ukraine; and with Iran’s destabilizing activities,” Biden claimed.
Responding to Biden’s remarks, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman described the U.S. president’s remarks as baseless and unacceptable, saying, “Such groundless allegations are in line with Washington’s policy to incite sedition and create tension in the region.”
Kan’ani said the United States is the sole country that has used nuclear weapons and in addition, its track records are marked with continued interference in the internal affairs of regional countries, occupation and military aggression as well as massive weapons sales and promoting militarism in West Asia.
“Once more, the United States is trying to create tension and crisis in the region by resorting to its failed policy of Iranophobia,” he said.
He said Iran’s strategic policy is to avail itself of peaceful nuclear technology within framework of international rules and regulations while, at the same time, continue negotiations for the removal of sanctions imposed on the country.
The Americans and Zionists in recent years have tried to use the nuclear talks or false claims regarding Iran’s peaceful nuclear programs as a club over the head of the country but the West should know that Iran does not tend to make A-bomb and in case it wants, it will be definitely able to do it because nobody can stop the country progressing. Although West knows this point well that Tehran does not make bomb because of its Supreme Leader’s fatwa which has called A-bomb forbidden, the Americans resort to such charges to create Iranophobia for milking the countries in the region.
A senior Iranian diplomat correctly stated that the Islamic Republic will respond in kind to any measure against its national security from any neighboring country, in a veiled reference to the countries that have normalized their relations with the Israeli regime which is aimed at threatening Iran.
Kamal Kharrazi, the head of Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, in an interview said, “Targeting our security from neighboring countries will be met with a response to those countries and a direct response to Israel,” he warned.
Tehran has emphasized that it pursues a policy of improving relations with neighboring countries, while at the same time making it clear that the countries, which are normalizing their relations with Israel and allowing the occupying regime to establish a foothold in the region, are betraying the Palestinian cause and bringing instability to the region.
The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s naval forces also said the Islamic Republic will teach a painful lesson to enemies in case they launch any act of aggression against the country.
Brigadier General Alireza Tangsiri made the remarks in a tour of four Iranian islands near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, which include the Lesser and Greater Tunbs in addition to Abu Mousa and Siri islands.
“If the enemy takes any foolish measure to foment sedition or carry out an act of aggression against the Islamic establishment, we will respond in a way that would teach them and their allies a painful lesson and will nip that plot in the bud,” Tangsiri said.
He added that the IRGC naval forces, which are deployed in the islands and along the operational routes of the elite force, maintain their combat readiness at the highest level in order to be able to carry out the most difficult missions at any time.
Americans and Zionists have always tried to spread Iranophobia for milking the regional states or justifying their presence in the region but so far they have failed in convincing the regional states about Iran’s threats and it seems Iranophobia does not work any longer and Americans and their allies will have to find another pretext to encourage others to step up pressure on Tehran.
The Islamic Republic of Iran’s policy of being independent and reliance on own power is being welcomed by countries and nations in the region and in the world, and the jig is up because the U.S. and Israel’s words have no weight on the regional states any longer and they have to leave the region and let the countries in the region live together in peace and stay away from tensions.
