Iran’s Role Vital for Protecting Persian Gulf Security

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the vital role played by Iran in maintaining security in the Persian Gulf, saying the presence of foreigners jeopardizes any initiative that could benefit regional people.
In a series of tweets published on Wednesday, the Leader said the Persian Gulf belongs to the nations living there and they are responsible for ensuring its security.
“The Persian Gulf belongs to the nations living there. Its security is the duty of these nations, & Iran with its long coastlines has a key role in keeping the security of this region. By God’s grace we will do our part. This is our historical, geographical & regional duty,” said one of the tweets, which were posted on the occasion of National Persian Gulf Day.
Ayatollah Khamenei noted that a “wise and rational collective policy” in favor of the people of the region cannot be achieved while foreign forces are present in the Persian Gulf.
“The #PersianGulf region can be managed by a wise and rational collective policy that benefits all Persian Gulf countries. The factor that threatens such a proper, wise move is the presence of foreign forces in the region,” the Leader added.
“The #PersianGulf is our home & the place for the presence of the great #IranianNation. The shores of the Persian Gulf & much of the Gulf of Oman, belong to this nation, & it should be present there. It should demonstrate its power. We’re a powerful nation with a great history,” said another post in the Leader’s Twitter account.
