Dehghan: Iran ready to thwart enemy aggressions

Tehran, Jan 29, IRNA – Minister of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan said on Wednesday that the Iranian armed forces by relying on their capabilities and the nation's support are read to counter any aggression or hostile moves.

He made the remarks in response to the threatening statements of US officials that the military option was still on the table.

Eight years of sacred defense and 34 years of resistance against arrogant powers have made the US regret its aggressions, he said.

The recent remarks made by the US officials should be taken as a political bluff, he said.

The Americans are well aware of Iran’s defense might and never dare to take any hostile action against the country, said the minister.

Iran never welcomes any war but is ready to strongly deal with warmongers by giving them crushing response, said Dehghan.

Continuation of such unwise remarks would only increase world nations' hatred of the US and this will ruin the atmosphere of dialogue and diplomacy, he said.

The era of bullying is now over and the use of such unwise literature will harm the US, he said.
