Senior Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi warned that the US military sales to the Persian Gulf Arab states are aimed at creating rift between Tehran and its Arab neighbors.

 "These weapons are definitely not sold by the Americans to the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) countries to be used for fighting the Zionist regime, rather they sell these weapons to create problems between them and Iran," Rahim Safavi said, addressing a conference in Tehran on Tuesday.

He expressed the hope that the weapons sold to the Arab states would one day be seized by the Arab nations in the region and used against the Americans and the Zionist regime.
