Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi said Tehran emphasized several times that will not start any war but will respond firmly if any country tries to bully Iran.
President Raeisi made the remarks while delivering a speech in Minab, Hormozgan province, on Friday.
Iran’s military power in the region is not a threat to any country, but is known as a security generator that the countries of the region can rely on, he stated.
In the past, whenever the enemies used to threaten Iran by using sentences like military option is on the table but now they say that they are not seeking war, the Iranian president stressed.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian president hailed the country’s achievements in the defensive arena, calling it a power of deterrence.
Earlier on Friday morning, Raeisi visited the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy exhibition.
