Syrian neighbors take different positions as Syria crisis deepens


08:02, August 17, 2012

BEIJING, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Some Western countries have increased their diplomatic activities in Syria's neighboring countries in recent days, which showed their intentions to scale up intervention in the crisis-stricken Syria, analysts said.

U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has just wrapped up her Turkey visit before French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius kicked off a three-day tour to Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey on Wednesday.

As the crisis deepens in Syria, its neighbors have displayed different stances on the issue.


The Shiite-dominated Iraqi government has on many occasions expressed the willingness to play its role in solving the Syrian conflict and proposed peaceful settlement by political means.

Iraq said it would not intervene in Syria's internal affairs and opposed any foreign interference in Syria or the use of force.
