BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The U.S. Navy is under the close watch of the Iranian forces in the Persian Gulf, the Iranian Army’s Deputy Commander in Coordination Affairs Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said on Tuesday.

Iran closely monitors anyone or any movement “in the realm of our region” from the Indian Ocean, Sayyari told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

“The region we are in has its owner,” Sayyari stressed.

Elaborating on regional developments, he said that security in the region could be guaranteed only through the regional countries.

“We don’t need others to provide security for us,” the Iranian commander said.

“If these foreigners leave the region, the people in the region will know how to take care of their affairs,” he continued.

Sayyari had already commented on the presence of the US warships in the region, saying that “out of territorial waters, any country can navigate according to the international rules; we do the same.”

“But we will not allow the US warships to get near to Iran’s territorial waters,” he added.
