US Talk of Regime Change Denounced

A top Iranian military commander denounced the recent US chatter of pursuing a policy of regime change against the government in Tehran. Lieutenant General Masoud Jazayeri, deputy chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, criticized remarks made recently by high-ranking US officials such as Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, suggesting they may seek to topple the Iranian government, which they accuse of sponsoring terrorism and oppressing political opponents. Jazayeri said Iran is unfazed by such comments from the administration of US President Donald Trump, but vowed to respond with action, Press TV reported. "The ridiculous dreams of the Americans about overthrowing the Islamic Republic of Iran is nothing more than disturbed delusions and we are not worried that they have preoccupied themselves in such a way," Jazayeri said. "We will respond to the nonsensical talks of American authorities in the theaters of action," he added.
