TEHRAN (FNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said that the Zionist regime’s ballistic missile capability wouldn’t help it in confrontations with the Islamic Republic.
“Israel is too weak to confront Iran. The leaders of this illegitimate fake regime know well what would happen in the region in response to an attack (against us),” Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Monday in response to a successful Israeli ballistic missile test.
In a press conference in Tehran, Mottaki said that “If Israel’s nuclear missile warheads could have helped, she would have won the (Second) Lebanon War.”
According to the minister, “The interior structure of the Zionist regime has been affected by the repercussions of its humiliating defeat in the Lebanon confrontation – not with a classic army, but rather with a popular resistance.”
In response to the possibility that the UN Security Council will impose additional sanctions on Iran following the country’ refusal to suspend its uranium enrichment program, Mottaki said, “Despite the fact that this step is illogical and unlawful, if that’s the way its going to be – Iran will have a serious and reasonable response.”
The minister added that additional sanctions “would have no impact on the desire of the nation and the Iranian leadership on its path to realizing its full rights in general and with regards to the nuclear aspect.”
