Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Mohsen Naziri Asl has warned military action in Syria will spark a “deeper crisis” and stir a “regional war”.
According to Press TV, the Iranian ambassador told the Geneva-based council on Monday “Military action risks igniting a regional war.”
He added “The only way out of this situation is the immediate negotiation end the conflict.”
The Iranian envoy made the comments after UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on Monday warned against the ramifications of a military action in Syria.
She said “This appalling situation cries out for international action, yet a military response or the continued supply of arms risk igniting a regional conflagration, possibly resulting in many more deaths and even more widespread misery.”
