Iran’s foreign minister has slammed recent anti-Iranian remarks by Israel's foreign minister Yair Lapid, saying that the Islamic Republic will defend its interests with power.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian’s remarks came in a Monday tweet in response to earlier claims by Lapid that the Zionist regime “could attack Iran if necessary without informing the Biden administration.”
In an interview on Friday, Lapid alleged that “Israel has capabilities, some of which the world, and even some experts in the field, cannot even imagine.”
Reacting to Lapid’s allegations, Amir-Abdollahian took to Twitter saying that the senseless remarks made by the “fake Israeli regime against the great Iranian nation” are a dream, which will never come true.
“We will defend the nation’s rights, interests and progress with power and wisdom,” Iran’s foreign minister said.
“Zionism has no place in the future world,” Iran’s top diplomat emphasized.
اظهارات آشفته وزير خارجه رژيم جعلی اسراییل در قبال ملت بزرگ ایران، مصداق این ضرب المثل معروف ایرانیست که« شتر در خواب بیند پنبه دانه، گهی لپ لپ خورد گه دانه دانه». با اقتدار و عقلانیت از حقوق ، منافع وپیشرفت ملت دفاع می کنیم. صهیونیسم جایی در آینده جهان ندارد.— H.Amirabdollahian امیرعبداللهیان (@Amirabdolahian) January 3, 2022
The Israeli regime has never stopped advertising the threat of “military action” against Iran and falsely accusing the Islamic Republic of seeking to acquire non-conventional military capability.
Iranian generals, for their part, have decisively warned the Tel Aviv regime on multiple occasions against any adventurism against the country, pledging a crushing response to any attack.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched a massive military exercise last week, following which both Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Baqeri and IRGC Chief Commander Hossein Salami warned that the Iranian armed forces will “cut off” the hands of aggressors in case of an attack against the country.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great progress in developing and manufacturing a broad range of domestically-manufactured equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in this regard.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the Islamic Republic will not hesitate to build up its defense capabilities, emphasizing such abilities are entirely meant for the purpose of defense and will be never subject to negotiations.
