Separatists, traitors can never feel safe anywhere in Iran: IRGC chief
The chief commander of Iran's IRGC warns that the West will never succeed in endangering the security of Iran.
The chief commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), Major General Hossein Salami, warned that separatists and traitors will never feel safe in Iran because it will not tolerate schemes used to undermine their independence.
Salami addressed members of the Hamzeh Seyed Al-Shohada Base of the IRGC Ground Force, as well as several military commanders and state officials in the northwestern Iranian city of Urmia on Monday.
He said, “The Iranian nation will not allow separatists and traitors to conspire against the independence of the country. They will not let enemies endanger security at the country’s frontiers. There will be no safe place for anyone pursuing anti-Iran plots."
According to the IRGC chief, enemies have been waging various conspiracies and seditious plots against the Iranian nation since the Islamic Revolution's success in 1979, and they plan to create chaos in Iranian cities, just like the scenario that took in Syria. “They (enemies) want poverty and the collapse of the economy and security. This is the sinister scheme that enemies have been chasing in Muslim countries, and of course, have failed to accomplish until now,” Salami said.
Earlier, the IRGC chief accused enemies of trying to downplay the Islamic Republic’s achievements by resorting to evil plots to foment riots in Iran.
During a conference in commemoration of martyred Iranian athletes in Tehran last October, Salami said that the enemies won't accept the Islamic Republic's achievements and its success in overcoming sanctions.
He warned of fabricated scenarios against Iran, saying the media outlets' activities have been masterminded by think tanks in Washington, New York, and several of European countries destroying Iran’s achievements.
The chief also advised the Iranian youth to protect the country’s glory, might, grandeur, political power in the international arena, regional clout, and strong security that have been gained with the blood of martyrs.
