Minister: Enemies afraid of military action against Iran

Tasnim – The enemies of Iran are afraid of taking any military action, that is why they have resorted to sanctions to mount pressure on Iranian people and trigger social instability in the country, the interior minister of Iran said.

In comments at a conference of Police commanders on Sunday, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli denounced the US government’s wrong belief that the mounting pressure of sanctions on Iranian people could foment social tensions and instability in the country.

“We will stand against these pressures, however, resistance has a price and we should minimize the costs. We have been successful whenever we had internal solidarity,” the minister added.

Highlighting the enemies’ fear of taking military action against Iran, Rahmani Fazli said the adversaries are aware that they will not be deciding when to end a war if one ever breaks out.

Iranian officials have repeatedly warned the foes against the consequences of military action on Iran.

Last year, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US government is aware of the crushing response it will have to face in case of taking military action against Iran, reiterating that the time of hit and run is over.

The US is seeking a way to evade the costs of standing against Iran and place them on regional countries, Ayatollah Khamenei said, reminding certain regional countries that if they confront Iran, “they will definitely suffer blows and defeat.”

Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that the enemies have resorted to economic war after realizing the futility of military action against Iran.

“They have now focused on economic and cultural war, with the US Treasury Department working as the headquarters of the economic war on the Islamic Republic Establishment,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in April 2018.
