Mohammadreza Rahimi in the 21st International Conference of the Persian Gulf pointed to the strategic importance of the Persian Gulf and said "The importance has created rivalry among world powers in the area.”
Providing comments on the necessity to ward off foreign interventions, he stressed Iran’s position as to common cooperation for the maintenance of security.
Rahimi stated "Security does not come only by military force. It must also rely on collateral trust.”
The VP considered the spread of ethnic and religious clashes in the Persian Gulf region in the interest of ultra-regional countries, stating "Ultra-regional powers’ army bases are after the preservation of security for Israel.”
He said that using warships for the Persian Gulf is the indication to foreign intrigue in the region.
"Considering its abilities and achievements, Iran could underpin security over the Persian Gulf,” he asserted.
