KURDPA - Iran has a few tricks up its sleeve, that are saved for emergency situations, Fars reported, quoting Iran\'s Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi.

Vahidi added that Iran has yet to show all its power, and the country can withstand any outside threat.

\"The U.S. is aware of the fact that if it attacks Iran, eventually it will lose,\" the minister added.

The West accuses Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapon. Tehran denies all the charges, saying that its nuclear program is peaceful.

So far, the UN Security Council has imposed four economic sanctions against Iran. The U.S. and EU imposed tougher sanctions against Iran.

The U.S. officials have stated before that the country keeps all options on the table as far as Iran is concerned.
