Tehran, Iran (CNN) — Iran is so powerful today that no country would dare attack it, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday during an annual army parade.
“Iran’s army is so mighty today that no enemy can have a foul thought of invading Iran’s territory,” the Iranian leader said, according to state media.
“Of course, Iran is a friend and brother of regional and independent nations and it wants peace, progress and security for all countries,” Ahmadinejad said.
During the event near the mausoleum of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini — who ushered the Islamic Revolution into Iran more than 30 years ago — several models of Iran’s medium- and long-range missiles, including the Shahab 3, were on display.
