India warns against military intervention, arming of civilians in Middle East


14:44, March 13, 2012

UNITED NATIONS, March 12 (Xinhua) -- India said here Monday that there is no one-size-for-all solution to the crises in the Middle East, where the situation varies from country to country. However, it warned against foreign "intervention through military force or arming of the civilian populations."

Hardeep Singh Puri, Indian permanent representative to the United Nations, made the statement at a high-level meeting of the UN Security Council on the Middle East situation.

"In dealing with developments in West Africa and North Africa, the international community needs to use all the tools of diplomacy at its disposal and be there to assist the concerned countries in transiting to an inclusive and participatory policy while maintaining social stability and cohesion," Puri said.

He noted that since the exact nature of grievances varies from country to country, "there cannot be one set of measures that can be applied to all of them."

"The solutions of the problems in each country have to take into consideration the society's particular circumstances and the genius of its people," he said. "However, what is certain is that solution cannot include intervention through military force or arming of the civilian populations."
