TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Ground Force warned the neighboring states engaged in a war over the Nagorno-Karabakh region that Iran would not tolerate any threat to the security of its border regions and residents.
During a visit to Iran’s northwestern border areas in the province of Ardabil on Wednesday, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpoor underlined that Iran would not tolerate any threat to the security of border areas or any harm to the mental calm of Iranian residents.
Iran would not hesitate to act when it comes to the security of people, he added.
The commander also stressed that Iran would never accept any geopolitical change at the boundaries, describing it as a “red line” for the Islamic Republic.
He went on to say that the IRGC may deploy more units to Iran’s northwestern border areas amid the fighting between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia to ensure security in the region.
Last week, Iran’s Foreign Ministry warned the warring parties in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict that Tehran will not remain indifferent if the shells fired in the fighting continue to hit Iranian territories.
Tens of mortar shells fired by the warring sides in the latest round of fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan have hit border rural areas of Iran in recent weeks.
