LONDON, Dec 12 (IranMania) - Nobel peace prize laureate in 2003, Shirin Ebadi, said in case of a US military attack on Iran, the aggressors would encounter very tough resistance.

Addressing the European conference themed "Cities for Human Rights" in Nuremburg, Germany, Ebadi said the Iranian nation will neither tolerate foreign interference nor a foreign attack, according to Iran's State News Agency (IRNA).

She stressed that the Iranian people's desire for reforms does not necessarily imply that they would tolerate foreign interference in their internal affairs.

"The Iranian people never desire foreign interference in their affairs," she said.

Ebadi noted that democracy cannot be imported to other countries like goods.

"Democracy is not a gift that could be given to other countries. Democracy is not established by bombarding other countries either. It is established when the overall climate is calm and normal," she said.

Over 96 experts from different countries exchanged views about human rights policies in the conference, which ended on Saturday.

The first such event was held in Barcelona in 1998."
