Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here on Sunday that the interference of foreigners is the root cause of all tensions and divisions in the region and the foreign forces must leave the region.

He made the remarks while addressing an official ceremony of the Army Day which was held this morning in the southern Tehran.

The past experiences have proved that the best way to establish and safeguard a durable security in the Middle East is the coordination and cooperation of all regional governments and nations, he said.

Iran wants peace, progress and security for all, the president said.

Praising the strength of the Iranian Army, he said the Islamic Republic of Iran's Army is so powerful that no enemy dares to invade the country.

Iranian top military and political officials, as well as foreign diplomats, are also present in the event.

Different Army units are to parade during the ceremony to demonstrate their military capabilities as well as their latest achievements.
