Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi has warned against arming Syrian squads because of its dire consequences for the region, Press TV reported.
Vahidi on Saturday slammed countries that have flooded Syria with arms and equipped groups noting that it will have very bad implications for the region.
"The enemies are trying to create a new power balance between the Zionist Regime [of Israel] and other Muslim countries in the region; a balance that has been disturbed because of the Islamic Awakening," the Iranian defense minister added.
Vahidi noted that the enemies are trying to tilt the balance to their favor by omitting Syria from the resistance front but they will not succeed.
He stated that what is portrayed as opposition in Syria consists of a few foreign armed groups that did not allow the Syrian government to meet the demands of the country's people.
"If foreign forces that have an irregular presence in this country enter the scene regularly, a major crisis will engulf the region," the Iranian defense minister said.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.
