Commander of Iran's ground forces Brig.-Gen. Ahmad Reza Pourdastan on Tuesday equated military action against his country with suicide, according to the Fars News Agency.

"Today no enemy has the requirements and the desire to carry out a military attack against the powerful Iran," Pourdastan was quoted as saying, "and military aggression against Iran is highly unlikely and even impossible and is synonymous with the suicide of the aggressor."

Pourdastan was speaking at a meeting of foreign military attaches in the Iranian capital.

Pourdastan explained that Iran's current military power was superior to any other time period in the country's history.

He emphasized the "defensive nature" of his country's armed forces and weapon programs, explaining that they simply serve the stability and security of the region and Iran's national interests.
