TEHRAN: Iran's supreme leader says the readiness of the country's military is such that it will dispel any "thoughts of invasion" by the enemies of Iran.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted by state TV on Friday as saying that Iran would never "give in" to foreign attacks or any "act of aggression."

The remarks came during Khamenei's visit to an army base in the country's northeast.

Khamenei says Iran's readiness has weakened warmongering among the country's enemies and limited an appetite for attacking Iran.

Israel, which considers a nuclear-armed Iran to be an existential threat, has not ruled out a military option against Iran's nuclear facilities.

The West suspects Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon program, a charge Iran denies.
