Senior commander: US, Israel interests in the region within Iran’s “area of operation”

Tuesday, 20 August 2013

Deputy Chairman of Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Cultural Affairs and Defense Publicity  Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said that “It is surprising that certain U.S. officials are still talking about military threats against Iran and believe that such threats can affect Iranian political strategists and policy makers. He said that U.S. and Zionist (Israel’s) forces and interests in the region are militarily “within the area of operation.” Jazayeri underlined that “the strategic mistake of the United States is that they have not realized that the carrot and stick approach is over.”  Jazayeri reiterated that Iran’s major foreign policies would not be affected by nuclear talks or any other pretext and added that the United States cannot form a rapprochement with Iran through childish political and economic games, or through military scenario games but only if it apologizes to the great Iranian nation and drops its hostile stance.
