Iran calls on India to give more attention to realities in Syria


08:42, February 08, 2012

NEW DELHI, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- Iran Tuesday called on India to " give more attention to realities of the present" in Syria after New Delhi backed an Arab League draft resolution at the UN Security Council last Saturday.

"India should give more attention to realities of the present. They should go by their own experience. We expect that India should help other democracies of the world (during troubled times), " Iran's Ambassador to India Seyed Mahdi Nabizadeh told the media here.

India voted for an Arab League draft resolution on Syria, in a clear shift of its stand on the Middle East, last weekend at the UN Security Council in New York.

Playing down the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, the envoy said also Iran is prepared to " defend" itself in case of that eventuality.

"We think the possibility of attack is weak. Today is not the day when people go to war. But we are ready to defend ourselves. We have experience in defending ourselves. We hope that eventuality will not take place," he said.
