Israeli officials, backed by the United States, have threatened to launch a military attack on Iran, if Tehran fails to meet Western demands to halt its program to enrich uranium. Both Israel and the US are possessors of nuclear weapons.
Iran, as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), however, maintains that the country is entitled to pursue its nuclear program for peaceful purposes.
The Islamic Republic believes that renouncing its rights under the NPT would encourage world powers to put further pressure on the country and would not lead to a change in the West's hardline stance against Tehran.
Jazayeri added that in the case of any adventurism, 'fake and artificial regimes will be the first to be eliminated', according Press TV Iranian news agency.
