No Power Allowed to Infiltrate into Iran: Intelligence Minister
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alawi made assurances that the country’s intelligence forces would not allow any powers to make inroads into the Islamic Republic.
In a speech in the northwestern city of Ardebil on Monday night, Alawi highlighted the good security situation in Iran and said over the past four years, more than 120 terrorist attacks have been thwarted in the country.
The minister further emphasized that all the perpetrators of the foiled terror attacks have been either killed or arrested.
He went on to say that with the grace of God, no place in the country is plagued with insecurity, adding that the intelligence forces will not allow any power to infiltrate into the country and carry out acts of sabotage.
Iran is considered by many experts as the “island of stability” in a region which faces many security challenges.
In August 2016, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the strong security in Iran despite crises and insecurity in the region.
“Thank God and through the appreciated efforts and endeavors of the military and security forces, the country enjoys a strong security shield while regional countries are filled with incidents and insecurity,” the Leader said.
