TEHRAN (FNA)- Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Abdollah Araqi once again reiterated that the country’s borders are fully secure.
“God willingly, durable security is restored to Iran’s borders,” Brigadier General Araqi said.
He reiterated that Iranian borders have been reinforced in terms of manpower and military equipment.
Iranian Deputy Interior Minister Ali Abdollahi announced that the country’s security forces have intensified measures along the country’s Western border with Iraq in a bid prepare for any unexpected incident.
“Given the circumstances in certain neighboring countries and efforts by enemies of the Islamic Revolution to organize terrorist groups, it is all the more necessary to pay attention to borders,” Abdollahi told reporters on Saturday.
Earlier this week, Iranian Interior Ministry Spokesman Hossein Ali Amiri announced that the country’s security and intelligence forces have full control over the Western borders with Iraq and are ready to foil any unexpected threat.
“There is no notable problem along our common border with Iraq,” Amiri said.
“However, the necessary measures have been adopted by the Interior Ministry and border police,” he added.
The official further added that Iran’s Supreme National Security Council will discuss this issue in a forthcoming session.
Last week, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned of Iran’s tough confrontation with the ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) or any other terrorist group which might come close to the Iranian borders, and said, “If a terrorist group approaches our borders, we will definitely confront it, because our duty is defending our territorial integrity and national interests.”
