A senior official said the Islamic Republic stands ready to deliver a crushing response to any terrorist group daring to make the slightest of moves against the country.

Chairman of Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani on Monday stressed the importance of maintaining national security to counter the potential infiltration of terrorists.

“Iran enjoys very gifted and prepared forces to fight terrorists and they should rest assured that the slightest move against Iran will face the strongest of responses,” Rafsanjani was quoted as saying by Press TV.

He said terrorism represents a major threat to the region, stressing that the countries that had created these groups for certain purposes are gripped by their crimes and openly express their concern.

Rafsanjani said insinuating a sectarian strife between Shia and Sunni Muslims is very dangerous for the region.

“This ominous plot should be seriously countered, because the flames of sectarian wars will burn down everything,” he said.
