Syria has cautioned that a military attack on Iran over its nuclear program would have serious repercussions for US, Israel and the world.
"It will cost the United States and the planet dear," Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with France Inter radio on Monday.
"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 an action in the Middle East, one cannot manage the reactions that can spread out over years or even decades," he said.
He criticized the US government, stressing an attack on Iran would be far from rational.
"This administration is an administration whose doctrine is a warmonger's doctrine. It does not reason with our logic, and that of most European countries, most countries in the world," Assad said in the interview.
Tel Aviv and its fervent supporter, Washington, accuse Tehran of trying to develop nuclear weapons but Iran stresses it pursues nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
Tehran has kept cooperating with UN nuclear watchdog over its nuclear program. The latest report by Mohamed ElBaradei, the Chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, certified Iran's non-diversion towards a nuclear bomb material.
The US and Israel have said they might resort to a military option to stop Iran from developing nuclear technology. However, Tehran says it will give a devastating response to invaders, making them regret their action should the country come under any attack.
