The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) says the 57-nation body is against any military intervention in Syria over the ongoing unrest in the Middle Eastern county."What we really need to do is exclude military intervention from our side," OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said in an address to the National Press Club of Australia in Canberra on Wednesday. Referring to the foreign military campaigns in Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, Ihsanoglu noted that a foreign military intervention would only harm the Syrian people. The military intervention "did not bring any good to the people of those countries and to the region ... and to the world at large," he said. Ihsanoglu made the remarks as the OIC and the Arab League are set to meet in Tunisia on February 24 to discuss the conflict in Syria. Many countries including Russia and China believe Washington and other Western powers are trying to replicate a Libya-style military campaign in Syria.


Earlier this month, China and Russia vetoed a draft UNSC resolution urging Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to quit power. Both permanent members of the Security Council have repeatedly stressed that Syria's problems must be resolved through diplomatic channels. Recently Syria rejected an Arab League-drafted proposal calling for the UN Security Council to deploy a joint force to Syria.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. The government blames ''outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups'' for the violence, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad. The West and the opposition claim the government is behind the killings of protesters.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
