Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad acknowledged as real the possibility of an Israeli or US attack on his country, but said that the Islamic Republic would offer "a decisive response" to such an attack. Ahmadinejad's comments came in an interview with Russia Today published on Sunday.

“They wish to do it, they want to do it, but they know about our power. They know that we are going to give them a decisive response,” he said. “We have a saying in our language: ‘If someone throws a smaller stone, you should respond with a bigger stone.’We will defend ourselves within our capabilities.”

Ahmadinejad stated that despite recently stepping up construction work on centrifuges which can more effectively enrich uranium, Iran's objective is to develop peaceful nuclear energy.
