      Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia concerned about situation in Syria

      Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept. 11 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/

      Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II is concerned about the
      situation in Syria, which can develop into a full-scale war, he said on
      Wednesday during a meeting in Tbilisi with the U.S Deputy Assistant
      Secretary of State, Thomas Melia.

      "We are very worried because of the situation that has developed in
      Syria today. And we are very concerned that this situation can develop
      into a large-scale war," Ilia II said.

      Some Western countries, as well as Turkey called for intervention in
      Syria after a deterioration of situation in the country. On August 21,
      some media outlets reported about a large-scale implementation of
      chemical weapons by the Syrian government in the vicinity of Damascus,
      which killed more than 600 people.

      Earlier, the U.S. President said that the use of chemical weapons would
      be a 'red line' for Bashar Assad's regime. Media outlets reported about
      the preparation of Navies and Air Forces of the West for commencing an
      intervention in Syria.

      Clashes between the government forces and the armed opposition have been
      continuing in Syria for over two years. The UN statistics said that the
      total number of victims of Syrian conflict exceeded 100,000 people.
      Syrian authorities said they are opposed by well-armed militants.
