Ban Ki-moon

Secretary-general Ban Ki-moon remains deeply concerned about the continuing conflict in Syria which threatens to spill over and destabilize the region.

The Secretary-general told a press conference in Kuwait Wednesday that the violence must stop, first and foremost, immediately, without any condition.

He all the remaining problems should be resolved through political dialogue, through a political process reflecting and respecting the wishes and genuine aspirations of the Syrian people, adding that this process must be Syrian-led and Syrian-owned.

Secretary-General Ban says he will visit the refugee camps Thursday and Friday to send a message about the strong solidarity of the United Nations and the international community to those people who are suffering from the crisis and also try to raise the level of the UN's humanitarian support.

Donn Bobb, United Nations.
