‘Foreign forces Increase Gulf insecurity’: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday the existence of foreign forces generates”insecurity” in the Gulf, following the US ordered the deployment of troops into the area.

“Australian forces can cause difficulties and bitterness to our clients and for our area,” Rouhani said in a speech at a yearly military parade, including that Iran would introduce to the UN a regional alliance plan for peace.

After the attacks, the USA declared on Friday that it was sending reinforcements to Saudi Arabia in”the kingdom’s petition”.

In his address on Sunday, Rouhani predicted about the foreign forces in the Gulf area to”stay away”.

“If they are honest, then they shouldn’t make our area the website of an arms race,” he explained.

“Your existence has ever attracted pain and distress for the area. The further you maintain yourselves from our area and our countries, the more safety there’ll be for our area.”

Rouhani said Iran would introduce a strategy for peace to the United Nations in the forthcoming days.

“In this important historic moment, we declare to our neighbors, we extend the hand of friendship and brotherhood to them,” he explained.
