Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad admitted in an interview Tuesday that there was “a chance” of a strike on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear facilities.
“We cannot ignore the possibility that there is a chance of a strike against Iran,” he said in an interview given to an international television station, which broadcasts in Farsi for audiences in the Americas.
This was the first statement by the Iranian president that indicated any change in Tehran’s position towards the West’s threat of a military campaign against its nuclear program.
Iran has been adamant that both Israel and the US were essentially “bluffing” and threatened to obliterate Israel, strike US carriers in the Persian Gulf and close the Strait of Hormuz, in the event of a strike.
