IRGC General: U.S. military presence in the Persian Gulf coming to an end

25.05.2020, Tehran.

The countries of the Persian Gulf “wake up” and form a “resistance front” to support Iran in its confrontation with the U.S., said the head of the political bureau of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Yadollah Javani, as Radiofarda informed on May 25.

The general made this statement commenting on the U.S. military exercise in the Persian Gulf, which took place from May 19 to May 21.

Javani noted that “what U.S. military calls a military exercise to improve security in the Gulf region is actually an effort to strengthen their presence in the region.”

The general stressed that Iran “is an established regional power, and is in the process of becoming a world power. The United States today does not have the power it has used to have earlier, and it is unable to achieve what it wants.”

“U.S. presence in the region is coming to an end. And the longer the U.S. remains in the Middle East, the worse it will be for them,” summed up the general.

By “resistance front” the Iranian authorities mean a number of their allies in the region, states and non-state actors supported by Tehran.


General Esmail Ghaani, the successor to the deceased Iranian General Qasem Soleimani as Commander of the Quds Force in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, made public Iran’s plans to reshape the Middle East during his visit to the Iraqi capital in early April.

Ghaani said, “The region is on the verge of change. Several forces, such as China, Russia and the United States, are present here. Iran, along with Muslim resistance, will support the presence of Muslims in the region and protect their interests on the territory from Tehran and Baghdad to the Mediterranean Sea. External forces will not be able to change the map of the region as they wish. Muslims will not accept these decisions in the same way as they did with the San Remo Resolution and the Sykes-Picot Agreement”.
