Iran is ready defend itself against any military strike, Iranian nuclear chief Ali Akhbar Salehi said Monday. Speaking on the first day of the 150-nation general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Salehi said that threats of force against Iran only add to the country's determination to protect itself. Both Israel and the US have suggested that a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities remains a last option should it continue to defy international demands to curb its atomic program.
