MNA – Top Military Aide to the Iranian Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi has said that Iran has taken necessary measures to respond to any US and Israeli military and non-military threats.

“The Americans and the Zionists are the major threats that may wage a proxy war in in the region,” Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Sunday in a ceremony attended by the military officials in the Province of Fars.

He added “a proxy war is a possibility, and we have learned to examine different scenarios and have a plan for every possible threat.”

The Iranian Leader’ top military adviser added that the armed forces have prepared themselves for tackling any problems and the police force are also ready to prevent any social unrest and insecurity both inside the country or on the borders.

Pointing to the importance of the West Asia region in the world, Safavi said, “major powers beyond the region are in a strategic and geopolitical competition for Western Asia, and it is expected that the region will be the most volatile region for the next 12 years.”

Meanwhile, he said that the Americans and the Zionists are in a weaker position compared to 10 years ago as they have shown in their failure to topple the Syrian government despite huge efforts.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian Leader’ top military adviser called Trump an imbalanced man who has waged an economic war against Iran alongside other industrial countries, adding that his talks with North Korean leader will not yield any results.
