Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Chief–in-Command Rear-Admiral Ali Fadawi stated that the US declined an option of military actions against Iran due to high costs and small gains, Iranian news agency Fars reported on March 4.
“The naval capacities can make our biggest enemies regret bullying,” Fadawi said.
The Rear-Admiral stressed that the US came to the conclusion that “the losses and harms of aggression against the Islamic Republic of Iran” will exceed possible gains.
“Today, the Americans understand well that the Army Navy and IRGC Navy are a united hand in the sea which enjoys much more power than the Americans,” Fadawi added.
The Rear-Admiral made his statement at the joint forum of the Iranian Navy and the IRGC Navy, which was held in the southern city of Bandar Abbas on Sunday, March 4.
Relations between the United States and Iran have escalated after the inauguration of the new US President Donald Trump, who threatened to withdraw the United States from the nuclear agreement (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) signed by Iran and six world powers – the United States, Great Britain, Russia, China, France, and Germany in 2015.
At the moment Trump intends to achieve an extra nuclear agreement with new restrictions on Iran’s nuclear and missile program. The head of the White House gave European states that signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action 120 days (until May 12, 2018), after which they have to provide a supplementary agreement.
Trump demands Iran to grant international inspectors access to military facilities that have not yet been inspected. Also, the head of the White House demands that the restrictions provided by the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan became indefinite, and that Iran’s missile program is recognized an inalienable part of Tehran’s nuclear program.
