"NATO does not want a Cold War," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said this. informs citing to Anadolu Agency, Jens Stoltenberg told that:

"We are experiencing a terrible humanitarian catastrophe in Syria."

He said that NATO would not take part in a military operation in Syria, adding:

"It is sometimes right to use military means - like in Afghanistan. But, sometimes the cost of military means would be higher than the benefits".

Stoltenberg expressed concern for a wider regional conflict in the case of NATO's involvement in Syrian conflict, and said NATO partners agree that such a move would make the situation "more horrible".

"Military intervention can not solve all the problems," he added.

Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests which erupted as part of the "Arab Spring" uprisings with unexpected ferocity.

Since then, more than a quarter of a million people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced across the war-battered country, according to the UN. The Syrian Center for Policy Research, however, put the death toll from the six-year conflict at more than 470,000 people.
