Iran’s Defense Minister, Brigadier General Amir Khatami,  April 17, rejected the United States’s allegations of Iranian warships persecuting US ships in the Persian Gulf.  The head of the Ministry of Defense of the Islamic Republic called the Pentagon’s allegations “groundless” and pointed out that the “illegal and aggressive” presence of America in the waters of the Persian Gulf is a security threat in the region.

What leads to insecurity in the Persian Gulf region is the illegal and aggressive presence of Americans who have arrived from other parts of the world to our borders and make such unreasonable statements,” Khatami told.

The U.S. military said that 11 Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) combat boats were dangerously close to US Navy ships in the Persian Gulf, calling these actions “dangerous and provocative.”

 “What leads to insecurity in the Persian Gulf region is the illegal and aggressive presence of Americans who have arrived from other parts of the world to our borders and make such unreasonable statements,” Khatami told.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on April 1 stating that the actions of the United States in Iraq lead to “catastrophic consequences” for the Americans themselves in the Middle East.

Since the beginning of the year, bases in Iraq where US troops are deployed have undergone a series of missile attacks by pro-Iranian militias belonging to the predominantly Shiite People’s Mobilization Force (Hashd al-Shaabi) of the Arab Republic.
