The Foreign Secretary said Britain would have "nothing whatever" to do with any such acts. His comments follow speculation America may take action against the two countries. US President George Bush identified Iran as part of the "axis of evil" which included Iraq and North Korea. His Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld recently warned Syria against supplying military equipment to Saddam Hussein's regime, saying it was committing a "hostile act". He said the US would hold Syria to account for its actions. Mr Straw said: "Iran is a completely different country and situation from Iraq. Iran is an emerging democracy and there would be no case whatsoever for taking any kind of action." Mr Straw was asked on BBC Radio whether he was worried that an impression was being created that once Iraq had been tackled, Syria and Iran might be next in line. The Foreign Secretary said: "It would worry me if it were true. It is not true, and we would have nothing whatever to do with an approach like that."
