    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has downplayed the Israeli threats to launch a military attack on Iran as a move to halt its nuclear program.

    "The Iranian nation considers Israel as just a nonentity and the regime is too weak to threaten us," Ahmadinejad said in his address to the families of Iranian martyrs in the central city of Isfahan on Wednesday.

    "Today nobody dares to threaten the Iranian nation," Mehr news agency quoted the Iranian president as saying.

    Last week, Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, voiced the new Israeli government's commitment to halt Iran's nuclear program.

    US Vice President, Joe Biden, however, has cautioned Israel against launching a military attack against Iran, saying such a move will be an "ill-advised" decision.

    Israel, which is believed to possess Middle East's only nuclear arsenals, accuses Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons.

    Tehran, however, dismisses the allegation saying its nuclear program is only aimed at civilian purposes.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has inaugurated the country's first Fuel Manufacturing Plant (FMP) in the central city of Isfahan.

    As the country celebrated the National Nuclear Day on Thursday, President Ahmadinejad cut the ribbon at the fuel facility in Isfahan marking a major breakthrough in Iran's disputed nuclear program.

    The launch of the Isfahan facility marks Iran's mastery of the final stage of the lengthy nuclear fuel production process.

    The FMP in Isfahan will convert enriched uranium hexafluoride into uranium dioxide (UO2) powder which will later be processed into pellet form.

    The pellets will then be stacked into tubes of corrosion-resistant metal alloy called fuel rods.

    The finished fuel rods will then be assembled together to build up the nuclear fuel core of a power reactor.
