29-08-2013

Czech top officials have spoken out against a possible military intervention in Syria, arguing that it will not help resolve the conflict in the war-torn country. Outgoing Prime Minister Jiří Rusnok said on Thursday that there were no legal grounds for military intervention and that he did not believe such a move could help bring about an end to the civil war. President Miloš Zeman likewise argued against military intervention, saying that the conflict in Syria was not a war between “good and evil” but between two evils –a dictator on the one hand and religious fundamentalists on the other.
