TEHRAN (Sputnik) – Iran will respond to any US action against the Persian country, said military Yahya Rahim Safavi who also serves as an advisor to the country's supreme leader.

"If the Americans think of any conspiracy, we will respond from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean," Safavi said.

He recalled that the Iranian nation "is an invincible power in the West Asia region" and warned that "any anti-Iranian action will overturn the region."

At the same time, he added that Tehran does not intend to attack any of the countries in the region and advocates for stability and security in the area.

"We trust that the enemies … understand that Iran does not seek to attack or annex any country," he said.

This announcement came a few days after Washington blamed Iran for launching an attack on the premises of the Saudi Aramco company, accusations that Tehran flatly rejected.

On September 14, the refineries of the Saudi Aramco company in the towns of Abqaiq and Khurais, in eastern Saudi Arabia, were subjected to an attack with drones and missiles, claimed by the Yemeni militias of the Houthis.

Saudi Aramco acknowledged that the attacks reduced its daily production by 5.7 million barrels, estimated at about 9.8 million barrels.

However, on September 17, Saudi Arabia's Minister of Energy, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman al Saud, declared that Saudi oil supplies recovered adequate levels.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia leads a coalition against the Houthis fighting in Yemen against the Government of President Abdo Rabu Mansur Hadi.

The Houthis warned that they will continue attacking the territory of Saudi Arabia until the country ceases its war operations in Yemen.
