Iran officials say they will “confront any threat” made by the United States in its territory.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Saturday during a press conference in Tehran. The remarks come after U.S. President Donald Trump claimed he ordered the military to back down from firing missiles at Iranian targets that was said to be scheduled for 2:00 a.m. Friday.

“Regardless of any decision (Washington officials) make … we will not allow any of Iran’s borders to be violated. Iran will firmly face any aggression or threat from the United States,” Mousavi told the press.

The foreign minister representative said that Iran’s decisions will not be reactionary toward U.S. rhetoric and policy regarding the nation.
