The Iranian ambassador to Russia has warned Western countries against threatening Iran with military action or increasing pressure on the country, Press TV reports.

“The consequences of a military attack on Iran should be analyzed by those planning the attack. Events in Iran and Afghanistan show that the beginning of a military operation may depend on the West, but the end is out of their control,” Ambassador Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi said at a press conference in Moscow .

“The political pressure on Iran has turned into a full-scale information war. They openly talk about a military attack on an independent state, which runs contrary to all international agreements... and norms,” Sajjadi added.

The US and Israel have repeatedly threatened Iran with the "option" of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran's nuclear activities may have a covert military aspect.

They have also used this allegation as a pretext to sway the UN Security Council to impose four rounds of sanctions on Iran.

Iran has categorically refuted the Western allegations, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to acquire and develop nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.
