When asked by reporters about the likelihood of military intervention in Syria, Foreign Secretary William Hague said that the Government won't "rule out any option on Syria" but said that the country needs a diplomatic solution
We don't rule out any option on Syria but we are consious that whatever happens this needs a diplomatic solution, a military victory of one side over the other would be a long, expensive process in terms of human life and so our top priority remains to achieve a diplomatic and political solution.
We can't stand still. We can't say we'll leave things as they are in Syria because it is a gravely deteriotraing situation.
