Ahmadinejad: Iran Army to ”cut hands of aggressors”
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the country's Army will resist aggressors and will cut off their hands from the Iranian territory.
Addressing a ceremony marking the Army Day, he hailed combat readiness of the Army in defending the territories of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The structure of the Iranian Army is defensive not offensive, the president said, adding that the Iranian nation is against oppression and aggression and will react to such attitudes by any state or nation. Today, the Iranian nation is the harbinger of justice in the world and opposes injustice anywhere in the world, he said, according to IRNA.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran's army enjoys a defensive nature not an offensive one," Ahmadinejad underlined. "The nation seeks peace and security all over the world and wants to have relations with all nations and states except for the Zionist regime," Ahmadinejad noted.
