Iranian President, Ahmadinejad, stated during an interview with an Egyptian newspaper on Sunday, that Israel owns 300 nuclear missiles, the Maan News Agency reported.“Even though Israel owns 300 nuclear missiles, the fact wouldn’t benefit it; Israel is going to be wiped off the map,” Ahmadinejad to the Egyptian Al-Akhbar Newspaper.
He added that the U.S. and the West are concerned about Iran because it is more sophisticated and developed than they are, denying Iran’s claimed intention of developing weapons of mass destruction, and confirming that Israel is ongoing with developing nuclear heads.
Meanwhile, Russia warned of what it has described as “destructive consequences” that could result should Iran be attacked.
“Attacking Iran would be a destructive mistake that may deepen the crisis in the region,” the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Lavrov, stated.
Lavrov added that there is no military solution for the Iranian nuclear crisis, pointing out that any military option, similar to the NATO operations in Afghanistan, will only lead to further risks and a deterioration of the situation.
