Iran has warned that any war on Syria would have repercussions on the entire region.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said here Saturday that his visit aimed to emphasise Tehran's support for Syria and rejection of any war or aggression against the turmoil ridden country, Xinhua reported.

Heading a delegation of Iranian parliamentarians during this Syrian visit, Boroujerdi said any possible war on Syria would not stay restricted to inside Syria but spread out of the Syrian borders.

The delegation is set to meet with Syrian President Bashar al- Assad Sunday and will wrap up its visit with a press conference in the evening, source said

The visit came hours after the departure from Syria of the UN chemical investigation team after days of probing the alleged use of chemical weapons in the country.

The visit also came amid a possible US military intervention, after Washington accused the Syrian administration of gassing its own people in a nerve agent attack that allegedly took place last week in the countryside of Damascus.
