malikiIraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki says his country opposes any kind of military intervention in Syria, warning that the move could aggravate the situation there.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in the Iranian capital on Thursday, Maliki noted

that military interference could trigger a civil war in Syria as well as in other nearby countries.
The Iraqi leader condemned the ongoing flow of weapons to the insurgents fighting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for causing more bloodshed in the country.

He further called for a peaceful resolution to the prolonged unrest in Syria and highlighted the significance of organizing talks between the two sides of the country’s ongoing conflict.

In a speech to the NAM summit in Tehran, Maliki is planned to outline an initiative to end violence in Syria. Under the proposal, negotiations will be held with the insurgents and elections will be held under international and Arab League supervision.

The plan, a developed version of a proposal informally presented at the Arab League's March summit in Baghdad, includes an agreement by all parties in Syria to end violence and a call for all countries to stop interfering in Syria's internal affairs.

It also calls for roundtable talks under Arab League supervision and the formation of an interim unity government.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus blames the chaos on outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists funded and instructed by elements outside the country.

There are reports indicating that a large number of the armed militants are foreign nationals.
