Iran: Syria, Iraq conflicts won't be solved by military alone

OSLO - The ongoing conflicts in Syria and Iraq can't be resolved through military means alone, Iran's foreign minister told a news conference in Norway on Tuesday.
"I think we need to agree that there is no military solutions in any of these cases (Iraq or Syria) although there might be a military component. Even for defeating extremists you need more than a military strategy," Mohammad Javad Zarif said.
Zarif is attending a conflict-resolution seminar in Norway.
