WASHINGTON - Syrian President Bashar Assad has warned against possible reprisal attacks if the United States attacks Syria, saying that if there were military strikes, Americans can "expect every action."

Assad's comments came as part of a television interview with CBS conducted in Damascus in which he also denied involvement in an alleged Aug. 21 attack involving chemical weapons.

He said that if there were US attacks on Syria in response, the United States "should expect everything."

Video of Assad making the comments was aired for the first time on Monday.
