President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran's might has made it impossible for its enemies to launch an attack on the country, Press TV reported.

"Those countries that threatened Iran in the past are sending letters and messages to Iran today," Ahmadinejad said at a gathering of women in Tehran on Tuesday.

He defended his administration's firm stance in upholding the Iranian nation's nuclear rights and added that Iran's enemies oppose the country's nuclear program because they do not want Iran to become a developed country.

Ahmadinejad said the countries that previously threatened Iran with military action have now realized that they need Iran's help to manage international affairs.

"They planned to isolate Iran, but they themselves got isolated," he added.

"The most cost-efficient way to eliminate the enemies' threats is to adopt brave stances," IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

The Israeli government, led by hawkish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is adamant about halting Iran's nuclear program and has taken no options off the table.
