UK's Hague: Syria peacekeeping troops must be non-Western

By Reuters

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Monday any peacekeeping troops in Syria should come from non-Western countries. 

"I don't see the way forward in Syria as being Western boots on the ground in any form, including in any peacekeeping form. I think they would need to come from other countries, rather than Western nations," he told reporters during a visit to Cape Town. 

"Of course, if such a concept can be made viable, we will be supporting it in all the usual ways," he said.
