General Mood: Weapons are speaking in Syria

Major General Mood, the Norwegian soldier who was in charge of UN monitors in Syria between April and July this year, has said it is "the weapons who are speaking" in Syria.

He told the World at One that "anyone feeding the violence with money or weapons should consider very carefully whether this brings us closer or further away from less violence and more dialogue."

"The international community may actually prolong the suffering of Syrian people," he added.
