Bandar Abbas, Dec 22, IRNA -- The armed forces are not only monitoring and evaluating enemy's moves and threats, but also they have the readiness to fight any threat, a senior commander said Saturday.

Major General Gholam Ali Rashid, Commander of Khatam al-Anbiya central headquarters made the remarks on the sidelines of the final stage of the 'Great Prophet-12' military exercise which was launched in the Persian Gulf, southern Iran.

Iran's defensive power is increasing to fight against any provocative and interventionist act in the region and has been organized to confront any threat, he said.

Iran attaches importance to security of the neighbors and is trying to establish friendly relations with them, Major General Rashid added.

He also warned any country which is aimed at having intervention in the region to pay the most price for its provocative behaviors.

The drills were launched with the slogan of durable security under the shadow of national unity and modern defensive capacities.

Also present at the event were Islamic Republic Guards Corps Commander-in-Chief Major General Mohammad-Ali Jafari and Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the IRGC Briagadier General Hossein Salami.
