US President George W Bush dismissed reports of a planned attack by the United States on Iran as "idle speculation" in a Russian television interview broadcast late on Friday.

"We've had all kinds of reports that we're going to use force in Syria and now some in the left I guess are saying force in Iran, force here and force there," he told Russia's state-run Rossiya channel.

"You know, this is pure speculation and we used force in Iraq after a long, long period of diplomacy. People love to speculate about US intentions and our military and I'm just telling you it's idle speculation," Bush added.
