Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has assured that any foreign military intervention in Syria would lead to the "explosion" of the entire region. "I'm confident that any military action against Syria will blow up the entire region... A military intervention does not solve any problem, especially because the Syrian situation differs from that of Libya, seeing the country's sole role is fighting Israel," Salehi said, pointing out that "Syria is now paying the price of its resistance."
During an interview broadcast on Hizbollah's Al-Manar TV station late Saturday night, the Iranian minister expressed his surprise over the Arab League's actions toward Syria in the UN Security Council, at a time when the observer mission was still performing its job in Syria.
Furthermore, Salehi pointed out that Russia and China are aware of the Western project of "fragmentizing" the region. "The Russians are aware that the Western states are interfering in the Middle East to draw a new map of the region," he said.
On the Iranian sanctions, Salehi stated that Iran is studying the worst case scenario, and is preparing itself for any confrontation.
