Baku, Azerbaijan, March 2
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Deputy Commander of Iran's General Staff of Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri has said that if the US makes any military move against Iran, the Islamic Republic will demonstrate its real power to it.
His remarks came in reaction to recent statements on Iran's nuclear case by US Secretary of State John Kerry in interview with ABC News channel.
The United States deserves the benefit of the doubt on getting a deal that would prevent any need for military action to curb Tehran's atomic ambitions, Kerry had said
The US secretary of state is so obtuse that he thinks by threatening Iran with military options, the Islamic Republic will abandon its interests, Jazayeri stated, ISNA news agency reported Mar. 2.
"In case of a military confrontation, we will act in such a way to get rid of the US for good," asserted the Iranian official, stressing that Iran's military forces are highly powerful and prepared.
Our solid defense and wide offensive will remove the US from the strategic West Asia, he noted.
