Iran's reaction to attack would be 'very decisive': official

Updated on : Monday, July 06, 2009

TOKYO: A senior Iranian official, reacting to comments by US Vice President Joe Biden, on Monday said his country would respond "in a very full-scale and very decisive way" if it were attacked by Israel.

In Tokyo, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said: "I think that America and Israel are fully aware what kind of result such a wrong judgment will entail.

"Israel showed its military power sufficiently in the 22-day war," its offensive in Gaza early this year, he told reporters.

"That kind of erroneous judgment poses a threat to the entire Middle Eastern region and the world."

He added: "If an Israeli attack occurred, then the Islamic Republic of Iran will respond in a very full-scale and very decisive way."
