TEHRAN, Iran – Iran´s defense minister is dismissing Israeli threats against his country as psychological warfare.
The semiofficial Mehr news agency on Tuesday quoted Gen. Ahmad Vahidi as saying Israeli leaders are resorting to "psychological war" against Iran.
Israel has not ruled out a military strike against Iran´s nuclear facilities. The West suspects Iran is aiming at producing nuclear weapons. Iran denies that.
Gen. Vahidi warned that Israel is moving toward destruction of its "war machine" through its "warmongering" remarks.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday called Iran his country´s most dangerous threat, as the debate in Israel over whether to attack Iran gains strength.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmhmanparast told reporters Tuesday that Iran would not relate seriously to "baseless" remarks.(© 2012 The Associated Press 08/14/12)
