Attack on Iran 'would hurt US, Israel', says Syria
London, July 14 (ANI): A military attack on Iran over its nuclear programme would have grave consequences for the US, Israel and the world, said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Speculation of a strike against Iran's nuclear facilities has mounted following a report that Israel staged an air force exercise that was a rehearsal for such an attack.
"It will cost the United States and the planet dear," Assad said in an interview with France Inter radio.
"Israel will pay directly the price of this war. Iran has said so. The problem is not the action and reaction. The problem is that when one starts such action in the Middle East, one cannot manage the reactions that can spread out over years or even decades," he said.
News.com.au quoted Assad as saying that logic would dictate that there would be no attack on Iran because of the serious repercussions, but such reasoning was not necessarily shared by the current US administration.
He said the Bush Administration is following a warmonger's doctrine, and from the Syrian point of view, there was no logic to it. (ANI)
