protests in Syria

The UN Secretary-General says the situation in Syria has become unacceptable and intolerable, and is calling on the Security Council to unite on the issue.

Ban Ki-moon was asked about Syria while travelling in Indonesia.

Mr. Ban says there is no time to waste and he hopes that the international community will continue to speak with one voice, and particularly the Security Council.

"The situation in Syria has become now the most troubling and most concerning issue for the international community and for humanity."

The Security Council has been mulling over a Presidential statement in support of the joint UN-Arab League Special Envoy on Syria who is calling for a cease fire, along with talks.
