With its goodwill, Iran will try to contribute to stability
and security in the region, Brigadier General Amir Hatami said at a conference
in Tehran on Wednesday.
Expressing concern about hostile plots against Iraq, the
general said Iran deeply cares about its neighbor’s integrity, and would do
anything to safeguard the Arab country’s unity.
He also reiterated that Iran’s help for regional nations in
the fight against terrorism has been provided at the request of the governments
of those countries.
Iran says its support for Syria and Iraq is a testimony of
contribution to regional peace and stability.
Last month, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reiterated that
Tehran’s military power is meant to protect its dignity and ensure peace,
saying Iran would never use its power to attack other nations.
Highlighting Iran’s support for oppressed regional nations
and genuine fight against terrorism, the president denounced the "blood-sucking
Zionist regime” of Israel as a "cancerous tumor” that has been involved in acts
of aggression against regional nations for seven decades.
