Iran would attack any country which has given its territory to help effect strikes on the Islamic Republic, said Gen Hossein Salami, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

"Any point used by our enemies for conducting hostile operations against Iran will suffer our aggression in return," said Salami Sunday according to Fars as quoted by Interfax.

Currently US Secretary of Defense Hillary Clinton is on an official visit to Sofia, with one of the topics on the agenda developments in Iran and Syria.

Over the week, Bulgarian media quoted anonymous Bulgarian government sources, who said that Secretary of State Clinton is expected to request that one of the 4 contracted US military bases in Bulgaria be open for use for an operation against Iran.

However, in an interview before meeting Clinton, Bulgarian Foreign Affairs Minister Nikolay Mladenov vowed that joint US-Bulgarian military bases in Bulgaria will not be used for a potential US strike on Iran.

End of 2011, the USA had requested a similar move from neighboring Turkey, which has however demonstrated strong and friendly relations to Iran, so the American plan did not go through.
