Tehran, Iran, Apr. 09 – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi blasted on Sunday what it described as a “psychological war” by the United States against the Islamic Republic after an American magazine reported that the Bush administration was considering carrying out military strikes against Iran’s nuclear sites.

In an article in The New Yorker magazine, acclaimed investigative journalist Seymour Hersh quoted anonymous current and former U.S. officials as saying that Washington had increased clandestine activities inside Iran and intensified planning for a possible major air attack on its nuclear sites.

“This psychological war is due to America’s anger and desperation”, Asefi said at his weekly press conference.

“[The U.S.”> does not want Iran to reach an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Europe, or Russia therefore it is carrying out a psychological war – something it has done before”, he said.

He added that Tehran was willing to face the consequences of its decision to continue its uranium enrichment program. “Our red line is our right to carry out the nuclear work”, Asefi said.
