Failure to end violence disastrous for Syrian people

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

The Syrian people are facing tremendous suffering as violence continues in their country while the international community is still unable to agree on how to respond to the crisis.

That's what United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has told reporters after briefing the Security Council on his recent trip to the Middle East.

The Secretary-General has been urging Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to take what he calls "bold and decisive steps" to end the crisis.

So far, these calls have not been heeded by the Syrian leader.
