Intervention in Syria can blow up Mideast: Salehi

Source: Press TV

Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi warns that any military intervention in Syria will have devastating repercussions in the Middle East and would lead to the "explosion" of the entire region.

"I'm confident that any military action against Syria will blow up the entire region ... a military intervention does not solve any problem, especially because the Syrian situation differs from that of Libya, seeing the country's sole role is fighting Israel,” Salehi said in an interview with Lebanese Al-Manar television station broadcast on Saturday night.

He added that “Syria is now paying the price of its resistance.”

Salehi also expressed surprise over the Arab League actions with regards to Syria, at a time when the observer mission is still performing its job in Syria.

The Iranian foreign minister said Russia and China are aware of the Western project to fragmentize the region.

"The Russians are aware now that the Western states are interfering in the Middle East to draw a new map for the region," he said.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March.

While the West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of the killings, Damascus blames ''outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups'' for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.

In interviews with Israeli news outlets over the past few months, the Syrian armed rebels have clearly expressed their vision for the future of Syria and their interest in establishing relations with the Tel Aviv regime.

However, Syrian people have repeatedly expressed solidarity with the government.
