|Brazilian president opposes attack on Iran, says it would violate UN Charter||
TEHRAN – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has expressed opposition to any unilateral military action against Iran over its nuclear program, saying that it would violate the Charter of the United Nations.
“I am particularly concerned about the growing rhetoric in support of unilateral military action in Iran,” Rousseff said after holding talks with visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron in Brasilia on Friday, AFP reported.
“Any such initiative would represent a violation of the UN Charter, with serious consequences for the Middle East,” she added.
Rousseff also spoke out against military intervention in Syria, calling instead for a political process led by the conflicting sides.
She also expressed support for the mission of Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN-Arab League joint special envoy on Syria.
“There is no military solution to the Syrian crisis. A political process led by the Syrians themselves is the best way to resolve the conflict. For this it is fundamental to support the initiatives of the new UN-Arab League envoy,” Rousseff said.
