US warships never allowed to approach Iran’s territorial waters: Commander | Press TV

A senior Iranian commander says Iran will never allow US warships to sail near its territorial waters, reiterating once again that the Islamic Republic is ready to respond to any action by Washington.

Deputy Chief of Iran’s Army for Coordination Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari made the remarks on Monday while speaking to reporters in reaction to the return of US aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis to the Persian Gulf on Friday after a long absence.

“The response of the Armed Forces and the Army of the Islamic Republic is that we will never allow them [US warships] to come near our territorial waters,” Sayyari said.

He added that the presence of the USS John C. Stennis is insignificant to Iran, saying, “They cannot take any measure against us, because we are so prepared and have enough capabilities to stand up to such a publicity stunt.”
