the united nations about what he thinks the international community needs to do to resolve the crisis in syria you watching. marty sitting down with mr hardeep thing poori the indian ambassador to the united nations ambassador pouri thank you very much for sitting down with r.t. i'd like to begin with syria because that seems to be a great point of contention within the u.n. security council not the last and the only time the council reached any type of
7:32 am
consensus on the conflict in syria was nearly six months ago it was under your presidency of the security council a presidential statement was issued in august why has it been so hard since that for fifteen members to agree on does some kind of solution i wouldn't use the word solution but i would use the word approach but you know you're absolutely right the only occasion on which the security council was entirely on the same page insofar as developments in syria are concerned was on third august two thousand and eleven under the indian presidency when the council accepted adopted it be honesty that statement is a fairly strong statement it cause on the government in damascus to walk back from the use of force against its own civilians equally sends a message to the opposition to stop the armed insurrection and to enter into
7:33 am
dialogue with the government and extends both sides to you know negotiate and go down the path of reform after the unanimous passage of this b.r.s. deal on third august another attempt was made this time exactly two months later the council is faced with the situation but to permanent members of the security guards of course one side the resolution two others vetoed it russia and china russia and china and the fifteen member in the light of some aggressive public speaking in the open jim but the. it states walked out now the reason the council has not been on the same page is because i think as long as the council is in a position to address and recommendation to both sides in a conflict i think you would get agreement but if the council wants to address its recommendation to one side that is the government and is not willing to encourage the opposition to come to the negotiating table then you've got
7:34 am
a council recommendation which clearly is not acceptable to some members what we need to do on syria clearly is to realize that the situation there is spiraling out of control that syria is a sweetener this case that unraveling of the situation in syria will have very serious consequences for the other countries in the region. that unlike libya. the consequences would be far higher i'm not suggesting that what happened in libya is not serious enough but talking of libya i must tell you one of the difficulties that we are having insofar as the situation in syria is concerned is that the security council's expedience in respect of resolutions nine hundred seventy and seventy three on libya. vitiated the atmosphere in terms of the approach to words how to deal with the situation in syria it is reported
7:35 am
that in the coming days the security council will be possibly voting on a resolution drafted by western countries on syria calling in part for the for the assad government to surrender its powers given the dynamic of the security council right now the positions being taken by the numbers do you think this resolution will be adopted let me answer your question without reference to a particular. resolution if the proposition were to be advanced that somebody should have a power. in other words a regime change proposition i think some members of the council including my own delegation would have a lot of difficulty with that they thought i'd like to see how that is scotched if for instance the call is for political dialogue between the government and the opposition that's something we could support if the demand is for. you know
7:36 am
a joining violence reform negotiation that we can support that if as a result of those negotiations there's a political formula which is that which results in power sharing or this thing that's an entirely different matter but this is something for the people of syria to determine i mean as a matter of principle i have a lot of difficulty with people advocating that reordering of this. it is as my prime minister put it in his statement to the general assembly in september the reordering of societies from outside using military force now that's something i have serious objection to russia has proposed a draft resolution on syria when i was quite we were quite comfortable with the russian draft resolution we thought it was a good basis for seeking consensus in the council but i think some of our friends from the western countries had some difficulties with it because it did not contain because of our punitive measures that they were seeking so that's why you think the
7:37 am
west bank i think that's a bit aside as i normally you know i think the russian resolution is still around it's not been put on that it's not been put in blue but it's still very much on the table i want to ask you about libya because that was the first time the u.n. security council used the responsibility to protect doctrine it was invoked how come the security council does not feel that the united nations has a responsibility to protect those in syria is it because of what transpired in libya first let's discuss responsibility to protect you know the r two p. has three pillars below which says that it is the responsibility of every state to prevent its citizens from being subjected to mass crimes or to states that in the case of countries where the institutions of the state either nonexistent or whether they're under strain and the state does not have the capacity to carry out below one functions then the international community has the responsibility to help with
7:38 am
technical assistance the problem comes in pillar three which when it was adopted was clearly in the minds of some new to blanche or a doctrine for humanitarian intervention in other words if you find in a country x. things are not working you can put together a military force and going on. pyatt now that i think is absurd insofar as the implementation of nine hundred seventy three is concerned it uses words all means necessary now all means necessary is a cord for military action so we sat there in that room as consenting adults and we realized that what we and we consciously authorized. military actions would have to take place on that there is no doubt but what kind of military action yes you need to use to get involved they would have to take measures in order to enforce the no
7:39 am
fly zone that resolution one hundred seventy three also speaks of cease fire and when we try to invoke the cease fire provisions some of the countries which were annoyed in the military operation said that they did not want to consider the possibility of a cease fire to liturgy and had been. dislodged so then it became a mission for regime change well that's an interpretation you could put on that and that's what some people are saying now i'm not saying that it was done for it but i'm saying but that's what it amounts to in the end but there's a more even more serious issue. resolution one hundred seventy three specifically refer to an arms embargo but that resolution was interpreted as some people say well it means you can carry out military operations against gadhafi but arms embargo does not prevent you from arming the rebels now i find that situation unacceptable so let's be very careful before we can walk concepts and doctrine like
7:40 am
to be yes the libyan experience will continue to guide people now whether that should or should not be that is depends on what kind of resolution the council is faced with we'll see an afghanistan or iraq like scenario possibly unfold in libya with the benefit of hindsight that one can begin to have those concerns you're absolutely right i mean the situation in iraq now is extremely. i would say it's untenable the number of deaths which are occurring which are information which is in the public domain and one begins to wonder as to what we what the international community has got in of course in fairness there was no security council authorization for that action but in the case of libya where there was ostensibly a security council action i don't think with the passage of time when historians get to write on and there's going to be agreement on whether resolutions nine hundred seventy and seventy three interpreted implemented in the manner that they
7:41 am
had been intended to i think the jury's out on that and i personally have a lot of difficulty i'm speaking on my in my personal behalf i have very great difficulty. being confronted with a situation where the security council cannot act on its own a resolution which calls for a cease fire i have very often taken the lead in the council to say that words have meanings and therefore when we agreed to a form of words or a set of words we should be cleared amongst ourselves as to what it is that we are agreeing to. and you know the imposition of the will of those who have. you know military clout etc. you know it appears that in the context of the moment on the context of the immediate crisis that is a approach that could be adopted in the long run these things don't work i mean let's look at the issue of radicalization. i mean we all know what happens when military
7:42 am
operations stick you end up producing more radicalized response to it i think i'm gonna stand is a case in point is a case in point and i'm not a but i'm a student of history and international relations and i would be surprised if the libyan experience does not result in a more radicalized response from within libya as it is used to. recruit from libya and that all kinds of studies in which the intelligence community which the you know strategic community and the think tanks are now putting together. you know what's happening the militias when they come across a cache of arms they don't surrender to a central part of it strengthens that now we realize that there isn't into them set up there we realize that they need time so we will support that but you need to
