Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has warned that the US can "expect everything" if it attacks Syria.

In an interview with CBS aired Monday, Assad said if there were US military strikes on Syria, the US "should expect everything", Xinhua reported.

"You are going to pay the price if you are not wise with dealing with terrorists," Assad said.

He also warned that there would be repercussions for any US military attack.

US President Barack Obama has been seeking congressional authorisation for a limited military action against Syria, which he says is aimed at punishing Assad's government for perpetrating a chemical weapons attack outside Damascus August 21.
