Iran’s Defence Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami has dismissed the Zionist regime’s recent anti-Iran claims as baseless and warned it against continuing to show ‘dangerous behaviours’.
In an address to an official ceremony in Tehran, the general urged the Zionist regime to stop hatching plots against Iran and showing dangerous behaviours because Iran’s response will be surprising and crushing.
“The propaganda show by the Zionist regime’s prime minister is the continuation of a scenario by the regime to conduct a blame game and cover its unjustified crimes against the oppressed nation of Palestine,” he was quoted as saying in a Farsi report by Fars News Agency.
He described the Islamic Republic as the main supporter of the cause of the oppressed Palestinians and added the timing of the show by Benjamin Netanyahu proves that in addition to the general goals of the Zionist regime in pursuing hostility towards the Iranian nation, it also pursues other specific goals which include pressing ahead with Trump’s hostile scenario towards the Iranian nation.”
The Iranian defence minister once again called the Zionist regime’s claims about Iran baseless and absurd and added the levelling of such accusations is not acceptable even for people and public opinion of the world.
“They (claims) reveal the inability and confusion of the Zionist regime caused by its regional defeats as well as its desperation in the face of the Palestinians’ brave resistance.”
He went on to say that the Zionist regime’s officials have finally realized that despite their apparent success in pressing ahead with their occupation projects, they have failed to win even a regional war since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
“Their declining trend in achieving their illegitimate goals will keep going on in the future,” he underlined.
He also noted that Tel Aviv has a considerable distance from wisdom.
The Israeli prime minister delivered a televised address on Monday accusing Iran of violating the Iran nuclear deal. He claimed that he had new ‘proof’ that Iran had developed a nuke plan, which could be activated at any time.
Following Netanyahu’s show, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeated the same accusations and said ‘the documents show that Iran had a secret nuclear weapons program for years.’
In response, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif slammed the U-turn in his American counterpart’s position on Iran’s nuclear activities, highlighting Pompeo’s previous remarks in which he affirmed that Tehran had never tried to develop nuclear weapons.
Meanwhile, the UN’s nuclear watchdog reiterated it had ‘no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009’, citing its assessments from 2015.
A spokesman for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a statement that its board of governors had ‘declared that its consideration of this issue was closed’ after it was presented with a report in December 2015.
