Foreign forces’ presence in region won’t contribute to security: Iran

Tehran (ISNA) – The embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Japan stressed that the presence of foreign forces in the region will not contribute to security and stability in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.

Iran’s embassy in Japan reacted to the departure of Japanese destroyer Takanami with some 200 sailors to the Persian Gulf.

“The fundamental position of the Islamic Reoublic of Iran as one of the historical protectors of security in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz is that the presence of foreign forces in the region will not contribute to security and stability in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz,” the embassy tweeted.

“Regional countries and Iran with a coastline of about 2,440 km to the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman are responsible for maritime security,” it added.
