Olmert: We still opt for Iran attack

Israel's prime minister Ehud Olmert says the Zionist regime has not changed its position on a possible military attack against Tehran.

Olmert claimed that Israel is absolutely certain that Iran is attempting to 'achieve a non-conventional capacity', calling for 'concerted world action' to prevent Tehran from attaining 'nuclear weaponry', AP reported.

"World leaders have said every option that can be of consequence on this issue should be considered, and I agree with this,'' said the Israeli official, referring to a potential military operation against Tehran.

The Zionist regime considers Tehran as a serious threat after alleged statements by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that 'Israel should be wiped off the map'.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly stated that Ahmadinejad's remarks were grossly mistranslated and taken out of context and that weapons of mass destruction have no place in its defensive doctrine.
