Iran warns US over plans to attack
Iraq, Sudan

K J M Varma in Islamabad

Iran on Friday warned the United States that any attempt on the part of Washington to extend the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan to other Islamic countries could heavily backfire.

Any effort to carry the battle against terrorism by US to Iraq, Sudan and some other Islamic countries is not acceptable to Tehran, Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi told reporters while addressing a joint press conference along with Pakistan Foreign Minister Abdul Sattar at the end of his two-day visit.

Replying to questions about alleged US plans to attack Iraq and Sudan, Kharazi said, "Certainly not acceptable. Nobody in the Islamic world, or outside, will accept the US strategy. Therefore, it is better for them to think twice before attacking any Muslim country, as it may heavily backfire."

Kharazi said Tehran was also opposed to the deployment of US forces in Afghanistan.

"We do no find it productive for US troops to stay in Afghanistan. We are against the deployment of troops. The security of Afghanistan has to be maintained by the Afghans," he said

Any proposal by the United Nations to deploy monitors in Afghanistan could be considered, he added.

Significantly, Kharazi also deplored the alleged massacre of prisoners in Mazar-e-Sharif by the Northern Alliance, Iran's ally.
