A senior Iranian lawmaker on Thursday warned the United States that any further alleged violations of its borders would illicit a harsh response from the Islamic Republic.

“The downing of their drone was a good experience for them to avoid any aggression against our borders,” parliament speaker Ali Larijani said Thursday, according to the the semiofficial Tasnim news agency.

“Iran’s reaction will be stronger if they repeat their mistake of violating our borders,” he added, according to a Reuters translation.
