The commander of the navy says the neighboring countries should be aware of the fact that Iran’s defense capabilities pose no threat to them.  “Our neighbors should know that the improvement of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s military capabilities is no threat to anyone, but it is meant to defend its borders and interests,” Rear Admiral Sayyari said in an interview with IRNA on Saturday.  He said the message of the armed forces’ military exercises to foreign forces is that regional countries are capable of protecting the security of the region.  In addition, he said the military is ready to hold joint maneuvers with the neighboring countries.
