Iraq: Moscow against military intervention

The Russian Foreign Ministry has stated that the question of Iraq should be solved by diplomatic means and not by military intervention, according to Interfax news agency.

A spokesperson from the Russian Ministry of External Affairs, quoted by Interfax, stated on Monday that “We are viewing the settlement of the problem of Iraq exclusively in the political and diplomatic plane and along the lines of corresponding resolutions of the UN Security Council”. The spokesperson was being interviewed by journalists from Interfax and ORT Television station.

Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov met his Iraqi counterpart today to discuss “ways to speed up the process of settling the issue of Iraq”, according to the same source.

It will be remembered that senior figures in the Bush administration have repeatedly made insinuations that the United States can attack Iraq outside the auspices of the United Nations Security Council and unilaterally, without the backing of the international community.

In this stance, Washington has isolated itself hermetically and totally, divorcing itself from the international community at a time when the war against global terrorism is under way.
