BERLIN, November 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has warned that the militarist rhetoric in the Middle East can lead to a catastrophic war. He made this statement at a joint press conference with German President Christian Wulff.
“As for the bellicose statements that some state - Israel or any other, is ready to use force against Iran or any other country in the Middle East, it is a very dangerous rhetoric,” the Russian head of state warned. “We understand how high are passions in the Middle East, the situation some countries found themselves in - the peace process stalled and there is no development at all,” stated Medvedev. “And now if the militarist tide is raised in these circumstances, threats are issued against somebody, it could trigger a very complex consequences, even a conflict,” the Russian president said.
“So I think that it is necessary to exhale, relax and continue the constructive discussion of all issues on the agenda, and not threaten with the use of strike forces – because all this can result in a major war, and it would be a disaster for the Middle East,” Medvedev said.
