MOSCOW- Russia told UN-Arab League peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi that attacking Syria to punish the government for the alleged use of poison gas would destabilize the country and the region, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

In a telephone call on Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Brahimi that "attempts at a military solution will lead only to the further destabilisation of the situation in (Syria) and the region," a ministry statement said.
