Russia warns of military intervention in Syria

MOSCOW:  Russia Sunday called for refraining from unilateral steps vis-a-vis the conflict in Syria in the wake of reported chemical weapons’ attacks in the troubled Arab country.
“The threats to use force against Syria will send wrong signs to the Syrian opposition,” foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement, commenting on US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel who reportedly said Washington was ready to intervene militarily in Syria.
The Americans and Europeans should realize the “catasrophic dangers of this policy in the Arab and Muslim worlds,” he said.
The threat to use force, he added, would abort the international community’s endeavors to find a political and diplomatic solution for the conflict in Syria, which killed over 100,000 people and displaced millions others.
Lukashevich said the foreign intervention in Syria would escalate tension in the region and undermine chances of holding an international conference on Syria.
He, meanwhile, welcomed the Syrian government’s approval to UN inspectors to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Ghouta, outside Damascus.
