Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan lashed out at the US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter for his recent remarks against Iran, saying the country's Armed Forces are fully prepared to give a crushing response to any aggressor.

Brigadier General Dehqan's remarks came in reaction to a statement by Carter who said in an interview with NBC's Today Show on Tuesday that “the military option will certainly remain on the table if Tehran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany) fail to strike a final agreement".

"Such remarks that are always being repeated by some US officials are passive and worthless," Brigadier General Dehqan said on Wednesday night.

He said the US Defense Secretary seems to be suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and said, "If Ashton Carter had remembered the past and the recent defeats of the US in the region and the world, he would have refrained from making such empty remarks."

The Iranian Defense Minister underlined that Iran is always and under all types of conditions ready to confront any hostile threat posed by aggressors and the country "will give its decisive response in the battlefield".

"Such statements by US officials, specially at a time when the Islamic Republic is engaged in sensitive and complicated nuclear talks to get rid of baseless charges leveled against it, are a sort of poisoning the logical atmosphere of the nuclear talks," Brigadier General Dehqan added.

“Such remarks confirm Iran’s distrust in the US and will surely not influence Iran’s reasonable, rational and fair stances concerning the nuclear issue,” he added.
