TEHRAN, Aug 30--A senior Iranian military commander has warned that any US or Israeli attack on the Islamic republic would start a world war III, the state news agency IRNA reported on Saturday.
"Any aggression against Iran will start a world war III," Deputy Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces for Cultural Affairs, Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, said in a statement carried by the agency.
He reiterated that the so-called leading countries are falling and the world will soon witness great developments. He said that Islam and the Islamic Republic call for international peace and co-existence.
"Teachings of Islam and the aspirations of the Islamic Revolution uphold peace and tranquility throughout the globe and are totally against war and escalation of tension being stirred by the US and Zionism, the Brigadier General said.
Jazayeri underlined the need for promotion of peace and stability in the world. "It is evident that if such a challenge occurs, the fake and artificial regimes will be eliminated before anything," he said, without naming any countries.
The extremist and expansionist policies of Washington and Tel Aviv which have been manifested in Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan and recently in the Caucasus, have endangered the entire world.
The United States and its staunch ally the Zionist regime, the region's sole nuclear armed regime, allegedly accuse Iran of seeking nuclear weapons.
Iran has repeatedly denied the allegations, insisting its nuclear drive is aimed solely at providing electricity for a growing population when its reserves of fossil fuels run out.
