WASHINGTON, Friday - US President George W. Bush warned on Thursday that Tehran must hand over any al-Qaeda members seeking refuge in Iran and will face dire consequences if it seeks to destabilise Afghanistan’s interim government. “If they in any way shape or form try to destabilise the government, the coalition (waging the US-led war on terrorism) will deal with them, in diplomatic ways initially,” the US president told reporters. US officials are reportedly worried that Iran may be using arms shipments and cash in a bid to limit neighbouring Afghanistan’s pro-Western tilt and is enlisting members of bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network in the effort. Bush sternly declared that this would be unacceptable, saying “either you’re with us or against us, and any nation that thwarts our ability to root terror out where it exists will be held to account one way or the other.” “We would hope that they (Iran) would continue to be a positive force in helping us bring people to justice.
