Iran warns Syria strike would threaten regional stability

17 August, 2013

Iran's Defence Minister Hossein Dehqan warned Tuesday that any Western military action against its ally Syria would threaten the stability and security of the region.

"In case of military action against Syria, the region's security and stability will be threatened," Dehqan said, quoted by the official IRNA news agency.

"This definitely will not be in the interest of those fanning violence," the brigadier general said, referring to backers of the rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
