Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks at a military parade in Tehran on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2009.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at a military parade in Tehran on Tuesday that Iran demanded foreign troops to leave the region.
"It is insupportable that those from many kilometers away dispatch troops to this region," Ahmadinejad said addressing the military parade marking the anniversary of the start of the 1980-1988 Iraq-Iran war, noting that "they occupy lands and make people feel unsafe with slaughter."
"It is insupportable that those who are selling weapons and shouting slogan of peace accuse others of creating insecurity," he stressed.
"They want to establish divarication in the region," he added, continuing that "we advise you to go back to your own land."
Iran's armed forces, Islamic Revolution Guard corps and Basij volunteer force joined Tuesday's military parade.
