All options are on the table in regards to an Iranian response to a possible attack on its nuclear facilities, a top advisor to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said in a interview published on Thursday, adding that Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not want to “wipe Israel off the map” in a military sense.

Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Mohammad Javad Larijani indicated that Iran does not exclude the possibility of blocking the Strait of Hormuz in response to an attack, nor would it exclude a missile strike on Israel.

“Here I want to copy the wording of [U.S.] President [Barack] Obama,” Larijani said, adding: “Every possibility is on the table.”

The top Iranian official also referred to the recently cited comment by Ahmadinejad, in which he stated Israel must be “wiped off the map,” saying that the remark was “definitely not” meant in a military sense and that such a move was not “a policy of Iran.”
