Brigadier General Hossein Salami, Second in Command of the Islamic Republic Revolutionary Guard Corps, who was speaking in a meeting in Qazvin said "There may come up the question why west Asia is a center for regional and global concern and all the world’s attacks, seizures, and occupations take place in this area. It is because the Islamic state has disarrayed the arrogance.”
"When the Islamic Republic turned victorious the arrogant were burning with fury because the Islamic Republic as guided by Imam Khomeini would not have non-Muslims decide about the affairs of the Muslim,” Salami stated.
He then added "The IRGC grew from a newly-founded organization into a powerful defense system whose field of influence covers all the enemies. Without being military-wise present in any place in the world, the IRGC has blown the Islamic soul into the world and by doing so it has created a sturdy dam against enemies.”
Asserting that his forces will fully confront enemies from big to small, the IRGC Second in Command stated "We applied our entire power and talents against enemies in all fields. The IRGC will not rest on a fixed, organizational structure.”
