Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan advised the US to leave the Persian Gulf and stop bothering the regional countries, in response to statements made by the US military commander earlier.

“What are the Americans doing in the Persian Gulf? They should leave the area in order not to create any inconvenience to the countries of the region,” Mehr News agency reported the Iranian defense minister as saying.

“Is it acceptable for an armed robber to enter someone’s house expecting that a red carpet will be laid out before him? This is one of the absurdities of our time,” the minister added.

Such a reaction on part of the Iranian Defense Minister came after the commander of the US Central Command, Army General Joseph Votel, told the
He called on the country’s leadership to take military action against Iran.

In an interview with Sputnik Persian, the chief editor of the newspaper Iran Press Emad Abshenass said that Iran has given a clear warning to Washington.

“The Americans traveled for 10 thousand kilometers, came to foreign lands to threaten other states. Iran has its own maritime space in the Persian Gulf, which borders international waters. Therefore, if someone does not violate this space, Iran does not show any concern,” Abshenass said.

However, in this case what will happen if Iran decides to do what the US is doing. The analyst said, “Iran in turn can also decide to conduct maneuvers in international waters, say, in the Gulf of Mexico.”
