TEHRAN, May 31 (UPI) -- Iran is prepared for any potential war scenario that the United States may choose to implement in the future, the Iranian Defense Minister says.

Defense Minister Maj. Gen. Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said if the United States does choose to implement any military action in his country, the Iranian military is prepared to counteract them, PRESSTV reported Saturday.

"Iran's Armed Forces are fully prepared to counter any military attack with any intensity and to make the enemy regret initiating any such incursions," Mohammad-Najjar said.

Mohammad-Najjar also suggested that the current U.S. administration would not be able to garner enough political support to initiate a military action in Iran anytime soon.

"The current U.S. administration lacks the authority to push for another war in the Middle East," he said.

PRESSTV said Mohammad-Najjar also spoke this week about his country's ties with Syria and how those ties would impact regional security.

"Our defense ties with Syria will enable us to counter the threat posed by the Zionist regime and defend against any possible act of aggression," the defense minister said.
