RNA – Hujjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zonnour, the Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament, has refuted the recent claim by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, that he stopped a military strike on Iran with just ten minutes to go.
The cleric made the remarks in an interview with the Tehran-based al-Alam Arabic language news television network on Monday.
He said that Trump’s claim that he stopped a retaliatory military strike on Iran only ten minutes to go was “political bluff.”
Hujjat al-Islam Zonnour said, “If they (the Americans) had predicted their attack would be successful, they would not have cancelled it and it would definitely have happened.”
According to Mehr News Agency, he added that Trump’s advisors could see the failure of the attack.
The senior Iranian lawmaker added that Iran’s power has created deterrence, adding that all the 36 United States military bases in the region are under Iran’s surveillance.
Hujjat al-Islam Zonnour further described Trump as a businessman who only cares about money and is not man of war.
He went on to describe Iran’s power as devastating, stressing, “If the United States attacks us, only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan.”
He further noted that Iran is ready for any aggression while it does not intend to attack any country.
