Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says 'Let US see Iran's might in Persian Gulf'
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran must show off its military power to the US in the Persian Gulf waters.
“The Persian Gulf coast and much of the coasts of the Sea of Oman belong to this powerful nation, therefore we have to be present in this region, [stage] maneuvers and show off our power,” the Leader said on Monday addressing a group of teachers.
Ayatollah Khamenei rebuffed the US government’s demands that Iran should not hold military drills in the Persian Gulf.
“It is the Americans who should explain why they have come here from that corner of the world to mount exercises,” the Khamenei stated.
“This is how bullying powers must be countered,” said the Iranian Leader.
Ayatollah Khamenei also stated the US globalistsand the Zionist capitalistsas well as some arrogant governments are the manifestation of “international system of dominance” which is seeking to sway the future generations of countries in its own favor.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that the enemy will have to “back down” in the face of the strength of the Iranian nation.
“But when we hesitate and refrain from showing off the principles and elements of our power to the enemy or if we are scared, the enemy will grow brazen,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.
Khamenei also noted that some governments in the Middle East are implementing the US schemes for the region without getting any quid pro quo.
