Syria has its own defense systems to protect itself from enemies, Iranian Defense minister Hossein Deghan said, ISNA reported.
Deghan went on to note that Syria does not need Iran's help to provide it with special equipment.
He also said that the presence of the U.S. in the region would affect the crisis in Syria, and it will eventually go beyond country's borders.
Some Western countries as well as Turkey have already supported intervention in Syria following another escalation of the situation there. On August 21, media outlets reported a large scale deployment of chemical weapons near Damascus by Syrian Government Troops. Over 600 people were the victims of the attack.
Clashes between the government forces and armed opposition have been continuing in Syria for over two years.
According to UN statistics, the total number of victims of the conflict in Syria is more than 100,000 people. The Syrian authorities say they are opposed by well-armed militants.
