Neighbors Given Reassurance of Friendship, Goodwill

President Hassan Rouhani reassured neighbors that Iran’s military power and capabilities are a deterrent and pose no threat to them.
"We tell our neighbors that ours is a policy based on good neighborliness. We want to be a good neighbor for the regional countries and have no intention to attack any country," he told a ceremony in Tehran held to mark National Army Day on Wednesday.
"No one should be worried about Iran's power… Our neighbors should know that our weapons are not intended for use against them… [and] are for deterrence," Rouhani said, according to a transcript of his remarks carried by president.ir.        

Furious by the victories of Iran-allied sides in conflicts in some countries, the US and its European and regional allies accuse Tehran of playing a “destabilizing role” and are pressing it to curb its missile development plans along with regional activities.
Iran insists on its right under international law and the United Nations Charter to boost its military might and missile program as it deems fit for defensive needs.
