Iran Focus

Tehran, Iran, Nov. 08 – The Islamic Republic of Iran has been transformed into a “trans-regional power”, a top military commander claimed on Wednesday.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has been transformed from a regional power to a trans-regional power”, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards ground forces Brigadier General Mohammad-Reza Zahedi said. His remarks were reported by the official news agency IRNA.

He said that Iran did not seek to attack other states; however, its armed forces would give a “crushing response” to any foreign aggression.

“Today, the true visage of the Islamic Republic of Iran has become clearer for the whole world”, Zahedi said.

Separately, the commander of Iran’s navy Admiral Sajjad Kouchaki announced on Wednesday that his forces were battle-prepared.

Kouchaki said that the navy’s strategy was based on the guidelines of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and that it was prepared to take on United States and Israeli forces.
