Given the importance, peculiarity and sensitivity of Syria, once the unwanted civil war breaks out, it will surpass that in Iraq in terms of cruelty, destruction and extent, and lead to inestimable consequences for the Middle East as well.

Syria has such a strategic position in the Middle East that it cannot change without affecting the rest.

"The Syrian crisis could not be cut by an axe, but disassembled by forceps," said Mikhail Vitalievich Margelov, chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Federation Council of the Russian Federation. There is a lot of truth in his metaphorical words.

On the issue of Syria, the international community should urge the Syrian government and opposition to strictly comply with the six-point peace plan. Forceps of dialogues should be used to iron out the differences and a consensus should be reached to prevent Syria from falling into an all-out civil war and becoming another Iraq. It is the common hope of the world to avoid a greater humanitarian disaster.
