The arrogant powers are angry at Iran for its leading role in resistance against their bullying, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said, and warned that Iran would reciprocate any enemy mischief.
“The enemy is aware that even if, it throws a stone (at Iran), the Iranian nation will not let it go unharmed,” Larijani said in Alborz province near Tehran on Monday.
He referred to Iran’s resistance against the US and the West’s dictatorial behavior, and said, “Today, when we look at the world’s conditions, we see that the enemies are somehow afraid of the Iranian nation’s move since we have foiled their plots in the region and the enemy is upset about that.”
“They are angry at the Iranian nation because the Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation do not allow them to exercise their plots in the region and they feel upset because the Iranian nation has awakened the Iraqi people and other nations,” Larijani stressed.
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.
Iran has 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.
