Baku-APA. Slovenia opposes military intervention in Syria, Slovenian Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec said here on Thursday, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Military intervention would only worsen the situation and spread instability throughout the region, Erjavec told a joint session of the parliamentary defense and foreign affairs committees.

On the settlement of Syria’s crisis, he said Slovenia would only take part in operations in line with resolutions of the UN Security Council and those of the European Union.

Syria has been plagued by escalating violence since March 2011.

The UN Security Council established the UN Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) in April to monitor the cessation of violence in Syria, and the implementation of a six-point peace plan put forward by the Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and the Arab League for the Syrian Crisis, Kofi Annan.

The six-point plan, widely backed by the international community and accepted by the Syrian government, calls for an end to violence, access for humanitarian agencies to provide relief to those in need, the release of detainees, and the start of inclusive political dialogue.

Currently, Slovenia has a military officer stationed in Syria as part of the UN observer Enditem
