TEHRAN, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Arab League (AL) latest position on Syria crisis is "politically-motivated," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said on Monday.
"The Arab League position before the official announcement of the United Nations inspectors' report shows that it (the decision) is politically-motivated and is a pre-determined judgment," Afkham was quoted as saying.
On Sunday, Arab foreign ministers urged the international community and the UN to take action against the Syrian government over alleged chemical attacks that killed hundreds of civilians.
The final resolution of an AL meeting in Cairo urged the UN and the international community to assume their responsibilities in line with the UN charter and the international law by "taking deterrent and necessary measures against the Syrian regime."
Such a position has been adopted to exert more pressure on the Syrian government, Afkham said, warning that provocation to and encouragement for the use of force would be "dangerous."
Any possible military offensive against Syria would engulf the entire Middle East region, she reiterated earlier remarks by a number of Iranian officials.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that remarks and measures must focus on preventing the spread of the crisis," Afkham added.
