Iran's current influence spreads from Yemen to Lebanon, a senior advisor to the Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said.
Former foreign minister, Ali Akbar Velayati, who is also director of the Strategic Research Center of Iran's Expediency Council said that "our current power was unsurpassable for anyone in the world," the official IRNA news agency reported Dec. 15.
Others have no choice but to admit to Iran's power and influence in the region, the official said.
There is a need to study the evolution of the rapidly changing issues in the region, Velayati said, adding Iran always reacts accurately to the developments at the appropriate time.
