Former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Sunday a US military strike against Iran was not in Washington's interests. Wrapping up a five-day visit to Syria, Rafsanjani noted that the UN Security Council so far had not endorsed any unanimous resolution for action against Iran over its nuclear program and accused the United States of waging "a psychological war" against Tehran after it announced it had enriched uranium, the main plank of its nuclear program. "If the United States launched a military strike against Iran, that would be neither in its interests nor in the interests of the entire region," Rafsanjani told a joint news conference in Damascus with Syrian Vice president Farouk al-Sharaa. He said he believed that the United States was "incapable of taking a risk or engaging into a new war in the region without discussing the subject seriously."
