Iran warned Nato against intervening in Syria, which is currently embroiled in political turmoil. Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Thursday NATO would “drown in a quagmire from which it would not be able to escape” if it intervenes in the country. Recent NATO bombings aided rebels against President Qaddafi and helped bring down his regime earlier this month.

Tehran, one of President Bashar al-Assad’s strongest supporters, has cut back its support for the Syrian leader and has called on the president to respect the “legitimate demands” of his people.
