Foreign Ministry reacts to Netanyahu's threat against Iran

TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi has lashed out at the “outrageous” remarks made by the Israeli premier about taking military action against Iran, saying the Zionist regime’s bad dreams will never come true.

Ghasemi made the comments in reaction to the latest rants by Israeli regime Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said he does not rule out the possibility of taking military action inside the Iranian territories.

“Although the corrupt and aggressive Zionist regime, which is a symbol of delusions, grudge, and hatred, will never ever dare to take such a step, the uttering of such outrageous and shameful words out of ignorance or delusion by the prime minister of an aggressive regime, knowingly or unknowingly, amounts to threatening a big and historical country with military action,” the official website of Iran’s Foreign Ministry quoted Ghasemi as saying on Thursday.

Such a threat “will be certainly followed up on in legal and international forums and institutions,” he warned.

Ghasemi further noted that the formation of the Zionist regime was originally based on invading and threatening regional states.

While the Zionist regime has in the past decades been the main disturber of stability and security and the root cause of various conflicts, wars, and slaughters of human beings from different ethnic groups, nationalities, and religions, it is now expressing false concerns about stability in the region in a ridiculous way and with no shame, he added.

Referring to the defeats sustained by Israel at the hands of resistance groups in the region, Ghasemi warned that in case of any warmongering measure by Israel, Iran’s high military and defensive capabilities will make these short-sighted and malicious warmongers regret such “sick and delusional” remarks.

Relying on its original history and culture and following its historical experiences, the powerful and honorable Iran and its wise people will foil the inauspicious plots hatched by the ill-wishers against this dynamic nation and territory, with a resolute determination to fight against terrorism, reinforce peace, stability, and security in the region, and promote development and welfare, he added.
