Top Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi underscored enemies' inability to confront the Iranian nation in actual and full-scale war.


Addressing a forum in Tehran on Tuesday, Safavi reminded of the West-supported Iraqi-imposed war against Iran in the 1980s, and the nation's strong resistance that blocked the invasion and ended up after 8 years without losing even a span of the country's soil.

"Saddam and his US, European and Arab supporters attacked to confine our revolution and prevent our cultural influence, but Iran has stood on its feet and is moving towards sustainable progress and security," he added.

"The enemies should know that they cannot confront our nation which is insisting on (protecting) the Islamic Republic and the Islamic Revolution's causes," Safavi underlined.
