DM: Iran not concerned about US arms deals
Iran's Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic as a "powerful country in the region" is not concerned about sale of arms to a number of countries in the Persian Gulf region.
Speaking to reporters after a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, he said sale of such arms is not a matter of concern to Iran but to the Zionist regime and those who wish to dominant the region should be concerned.
On the US goals in rendering military aid to regional countries, he said the US is supporting the Zionist regime in order to save their arms factories from bankruptcy and spread fear in the region but "we are never afraid of them."
Iran has no problems with its neighboring countries and if they buy any arms they will belong to whole Muslims, he said, adding that it is the Zionist regime which should be concerned. On arms pact between Iran and Russia, he said, the US assists the Zionist regime and tries to disseminate such fabricated news to launch a psychological war to overshadow its aid to the Zionist regime.
