Iran will defend itself against any potential attack, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview with CNN airing on Monday.

"Any nation has the right to, and will indeed, defend herself,” Ahmadinejad told CNN’s Piers Morgan on Sunday.

“The response of Iran [to an Israeli attack] is quite clear, I don’t even need to explain that.”

Asked whether he feared a war or military conflict with Israel was imminent, Ahmadinejad said: "The Zionists are very much, very adventuresome, very much seeking to fabricate things, and I think they see themselves at the end of the line and I do firmly believe that they seek to create new opportunities for themselves and their adventurous behaviors."

“Another country can say, I am guessing that country B is doing activity X, therefore I will attack that country ... can this be ... a successful formula for the management of the world?"

Western nations suspect that Iran is seeking to build nuclear weapons. Tehran denies the charges and insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
