Iran would hurt US interests if attacked
9 June 2007
TEHERAN - A senior Iranian official on Saturday renewed Teheran’s threat to target US interests around the world if the United States attacked the Islamic Republic over its nuclear programme, Fars News Agency reported.
Washington accuses Iran of seeking to develop atomic weapons, a charge Teheran denies. Although US officials insist they want a diplomatic resolution, they have not ruled out military action if deemed necessary.
‘In case of an American attack against Iran, the interests of this country around the world and in the region will be endangered,’ Mohammad Baqer Zolghadr, a deputy Interior Minister for security affairs, was quoted as saying.
‘Today, all American bases in the region are within the reach of our medium-range weapons,’ said Zolghadr, former deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard
