Iran able to de­fend West Asia un­der 12 min­utes: IRGC chief

Tehran Times - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN – Chief of the Is­lamic Rev­o­lu­tion Guard Corps (IRGC) Mo­ham­mad Ali Ja­fari said on Fri­day that the Is­lamic Repub­lic en­joys the mil­i­tary power to de­fend West Asia in less than 12 min­utes.

Re­spond­ing to U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s re­cent anti-Iran re­marks, Ja­fari told Ye­meni TV chan­nel Al­masirah that Don­ald Trump was wrong when he said Iran’s power has de­creased since he took of­fice.

“If in the past we could de­fend the Mid­dle East, not to im­pose our hege­mony on the whole re­gion, in 12 min­utes, to­day the time is even lower than that,” he as­serted.
