Former Syrian VP says military intervention only solution

Former Syrian Vice President Abed Al-Halim Khaddam said a foreign military intervention was the only solution to the danger that is being posed by the Syrian regime.

 

“I call for the establishment of an international military coalition, [one that will be responsible] for an intervention in Syria,’ Khaddam said in remarks published by Kuwaiti daily As-Seyassah on Thursday.

 

“This is the only solution that is capable of saving the region from the threat posed by the Syrian regime, [which is currently] enjoying military support from Iran and Hezbollah and political support from Russia.”

 

He added that the complexity of the Syrian crisis could not be addressed solely by way of politics.

 

Khaddam also cautioned that a spread of chaos in Syria could easily occur if the decision to intervene militarily was not taken.

 

“This chaos could spread to the rest of the region.”

 

Syria is witnessing a violent uprising against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, which has killed more than 60,000 people since its outbreak in March of last year, according to figures released by the United Nations.
