Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Seyed Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi downplayed the US and its allies’ war rhetoric and their capability to attack Iran, and said Washington is facing too many problems and obstacles to materialize its threats against Tehran.
Sajjadi said on Wednesday that Iran’s response to any probable military adventurism will be very tough and far beyond expectations striking US targets worldwide.
He told reporters that Iranian armed forces have full access to the US targets worldwide and Iran will turn any US aggression on Iran to a suicide for them.
Sajjadi said that Iran is capable enough to teach the US an unforgettable lesson, adding at the same time that Iran has no a plan for pre-emptive strike on US targets.
The US has been trapped in the quagmire of Afghanistan and Iraq and is not at a position to take another military strike, he said.
The Ambassador said that US forces committed many crimes and atrocities in Libya but failed to attain their sinister goal.
The US and its close ally israel have recently intensified their war rhetoric against Iran. The two arch foes of the Islamic Republic accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.
Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.
Iran has, in return, warned that it would target israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.
The United States has long stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology.
Iran has warned that in case of an attack by either the US or israel, it will target 32 American bases in the Middle East and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
An estimated 40 percent of the world’s oil supply passes through the waterway.
