Salehi: Foreign military action in Syria will ignite region

February 5, 2012 10:59

Foreign military intervention in Syria will lead to an "explosion" in the entire region, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi warned in an interview with the Hezbollah-affiliated, Lebanese television station Al-Manar on Saturday night.

"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, adding that “Syria is now paying the price of its resistance.”
