Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Monday that arch-foe Israel was too weak to carry out any attack on Tehran’s nuclear sites.
Mottaki’s remarks reported by Mehr news agency came as a team of UN inspectors were conducting checks on Tehran’s recently-revealed second uranium enrichment plant.
Last month’s disclosure of the facility which is being built near the Shiite holy city of Qom had outraged Western powers and Israel.
“We consider the Zionist regime currently to be in its weakest position and we do not see it has such a capacity” to carry out a strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities, Mottaki said when a reporter asked him specifically about such a possibility by Israel.
