Ahmadinejad vows to 'slap' any aggressor

Updated on : Friday, July 17, 2009

TEHRAN: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed on Thursday that the Islamic Republic will "slap" any aggressors so hard they will lose their way home, according to a television news report.

State-controlled TV quoted Ahmadinejad as renewing his allegations against Western countries of having sought to influence the June 12 election in which he was re-elected.

The English-language channel said he told a "huge" crowd in the city of Mashad that some countries had even set up satellite television channels in their efforts to spoil the election, which the opposition insists was rigged.

Ahmadinejad pledged that the new government he will form in coming weeks will have "10 times" the power of the outgoing team.

If any other country tries to interfere in Iran it will "slap the aggressor so hard they will lose their way back home," TV reported the president as saying.
