Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, providing comments on the US demining exercises, said "They have said that they carry out a series of exercises with 30 countries. We say there is no need. We believe such acts to be in line with the Irano-phobia issue, where they try to introduce the Iranian power as a threat to countries of the Persian Gulf region.”
He believed that the US will have the same experience in these exercises as they did in the previous ones, where only a couple of countries accompanied them.
He asserted "This week we will make a demining system operational in order that enemies would not be able to create such situations in practice.”
