Iran's self-defense options 'limitless' - President

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says no military action is expected to be taken against the Islamic Republic since enemies are aware of Iran's reaction, Press TV reported.

"Iran is not concerned by a prospective military attack by any country, although it is always prepared to defend itself," Ahmadinejad said in an interview with Qatar's al-Sharq and the Peninsula newspapers on Monday.

"Enemies know well that Iran is an invincible fortress and I do not believe the US masters of the Zionists will allow the regime [in Tel Aviv] to take any measures against Iran," noted the Iranian chief executive.

Asked about Iran's options in the case it is attacked, Ahmadinejad said, "Iran has limitless options which extends to all parts of the world."

Commenting on the Israeli threats over the Iran's nuclear enrichment program, the Iranian president pointed out that "Israel is too weak to stage a military strike against Iran, but if it attacks, it will receive a devastating response, which will make it regret its aggression."

He also dismissed the idea that Arab countries' soil would be used to launch attacks on Iran, saying that the "leaders of these countries are more prudent than that."

Ahmadinejad further downplayed US military might in its current wars in the Middle East region and rejected the speculations that an imminent war against Iran was the cause of the US troops' withdrawal from Iraq.
