TEHRAN, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that military intervention is not a solution to Syria's crisis.
Making the remarks in his weekly press briefing, Mehmanparast slammed at the ideas which rely on the military intervention to settle the crisis in the Arab country.
The appropriate way to deal with the issue is to refrain from any foreign intervention, to stop arming the dissident groups and to prevent the activities of terrorist groups in Syria, said the spokesman.
Therefore, those countries which can play a "positive and constructive" role in resolving the crisis in Syria should work together to carry out the necessary measures, he added.
Any remark which encourages military intervention "is not a logical and wise" approach, Mehmanparast said, adding that there is no practical ground for such interventions due to the sensitivity of the region.
Military intervention in any country in the region can lead to a "serious crisis" in the entire region, he maintained.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Monday that the military alliance has no intention to intervene in Syria and called for a political solution.
"Our position remains the same. NATO has no intention to intervene militarily in Syria," Rasmussen told reporters at NATO headquarters.
"We do believe that the right way forward is to find a political solution, based on the elements in the Annan plan, which I still think constitute the best framework for transition to democracy in Syria," he said.
The remarks are made after some countries, including Turkey, has publicly urged to establish a safe zone for civilians in Syria, which raised fears that NATO may launch military strikes against Syria.
