Iran is capable of hitting US military forces around the world if attacked by the United States, Russia's Interfax news agency quoted the Iranian ambassador to Moscow as saying on Wednesday. The United States has imposed sanctions, targeting Iran's central bank and giving U.S. banks new powers to freeze Iranian government assets, which tighten international measures aimed at forcing the Islamic Republic to scrap sensitive nuclear work. Interfax said the Iranian ambassador, Seyyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi, had told a news conference in Moscow that the United States would be making a mistake if it carried out a military strike on Iran, although Washington has announced no such plans.
