Iran is determined to pursue the advancement of its nuclear program, Iranian Foreign Ministry Ali Akbar Salehi said on Sunday, adding that Tehran was prepared for any “worse-case scenario” in attempt to defend its nuclear aspirations.
Salehi’s comments came after U.S. National Adviser Tom Donilon arrived in Israel to discuss Iran’s nuclear standoff with the West with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Speaking with Haaretz just prior to Donilon’s visit, a U.S. official has told Haaretz that all the messages from Israel in recent months pointed to the likelihood of an Israeli strike on Iran .
The senior U.S. official said that in the past six months the messages reaching Washington from Jerusalem have increasingly pointed to the likelihood of an Israeli strike, more so than in the previous two years.
