Tehran (ISNA) - Deputy chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri reacted to the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's recent remarks on Iranian presidential election.

"Today, the resistance of the region is in the best condition and can deal with military and terrorist actions," General Jazayeri said.

"The only way to reach the peace in the region is the withdrawal of Americans and cessation of terrorist and aggressive operations of dependent and reactionary regimes in the region against independent countries," he stated.

General Jazayeri emphasized that Islamic Republic of Iran's policies and goals were in progress in a clear and defined way and no one can obstruct it.

"Regarding the current situation in the world and region and existence of Islamic revolution's enemies, continuing and accelerating defensive goals including missile defense systems are our priorities," he continued.
