Israel's integration into CENTCOM and its presence in military exercises in the region is a threat, said Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Bagheri, Mehr reports.
According to him, in recent years, relations between Tehran and Islamabad have been developing well thanks to the efforts of the commanders and officials of the two countries, and these relations need to be developed.
He also noted that the region in which the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan are located is very important and sensitive. According to him, recent regional developments have led to the intervention of foreign powers from outside the region, which has created problems at the regional level.
Noting that the "Zionist regime" is at the center of instability in the region, he added that Israel wants to establish ties with regional states and achieve obsessive goals. Iran will respond to Israeli intervention in the region, he said.
Bagheri noted that the Russian-Ukrainian war will certainly affect the region and the whole world, and the expansion of NATO to Russia's borders poses a threat to its security.
