Iran dismisses reports on possible US-Israeli attack
Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Hamid-Reza Asefi on Sunday said at his weekly press briefing that news on US-Israeli cooperation for launching a military attack on Iran were "just a news fabrication."
He pointed to results of an opinion poll conducted by an Israeli newspaper, saying, "Over 80 percent of Israelis expressed opposition to such an attack on Iran. This stems from the Islamic Republic's power and strength."
He rejected a news report on two regional states' readiness to allow the United States and Israel to use their soil for a military ttack on Iran, saying, "Such reports are spread in line with a psychological warfare launched by certain circles against Iran." Asefi refuted Iran's purchase of 18 missiles from North Korea and added, "Our missiles are indigenous. We have capabilities to produce missile inside our territory."
