A senior Iranian official underlined the country’s high level of preparedness to defend itself against any possible enemy aggression, but meantime dismissed the possibility of enemy invasion as almost unlikely.
“Since we are at the highest level of defensive power, the possibility of war is very low,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said at a press conference in the Kazakh capital city, Astana.
He stressed that enemies are aware of the high costs and little advantages of any war against Iran, and said, “Wisdom rules that no war will take place.”
Israel and its close ally the United States 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.
The Zionist regime has recently intensified its war rhetoric against Tehran, warning that it plans to hit Iranian nuclear facilities.
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 also always stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology.
In response, Iran has warned it would hit the US, Israel and their worldwide interests and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if it became the target of a military attack over its nuclear program.
Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the strategic Persian Gulf waterway, is a major oil shipping route.
