Iran Responds to Sarkozy Threats, Vows to Hit Back at Any Attack

Al-Manar | September 9, 2011

The Islamic Republic of Iran warned on Thursday it would not hesitate to hit back following any foreign attack on its soil.

In a formal complaint to the United Nations over a warning from French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Iran’s UN ambassador said in a letter to UN leaders that his country would “not hesitate to act in self-defense to respond to any attack against the Iranian nation.”

Sarkozy said last week that Iran’s “military, nuclear and ballistic ambitions constitute a growing threat that may lead to a preventive attack against Iranian sites that would provoke a major crisis that France wants to avoid at all costs”.

Iran would “take appropriate defensive measures to protect itself”, ambassador Mohammad Khazaee told UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council. The envoy also described Sarkozy’s remarks as “inflammatory and baseless allegations”.

Khazaee again denied the charge that his country was seeking a nuclear weapon. “Iran is a leading nation in rejecting and opposing all kinds of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons,” said Khazaee. “Moreover I wish to reiterate my government’s position that the Islamic Republic of Iran has no intention to attack any other nations.”

In an August 31 speech to French ambassadors, Sarkozy said that Iran “refuses to negotiate seriously” and declared that France would work with its allies to build support for tougher international sanctions. However, he did not say which country might carry out the preventive attack.

  1. Sarkozy another zionist mossad piece of crap. Not only is the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy under the influence of the zionsts, and do the bidding of the apartheid zionist nation of Israel, there is no evidence whatsover that links Iran to nuclear weapons. They are permitted to have nuclear power for electric use and for nuclear medicine. This is another attempt to throw the nuclear weapons lies on Iran, while Israel has secretly had them for decades and refused to permit to this day the IAEA into see what they have. I would hope the people of France know as most americans do, that Sarkozy is a zionist shill. this is a continuation of the Project for a New American Century, crafted by the neocon zionists miliatary in Uk, US, France, Germany and Italy…regime change…7 countries in 5 years…

  3. It’s election time next year…. and thus there’s someone who wants to be re-elected.. and thus opens his mouth……

    The man (Sarkozy I mean) is irrational, mentally sick and just out for votes…… The fact that this man is allowed to be head of a government has always puzzled me!
