UN chief calls for united action to end violence in Syria PDF Print E-mail
UNITED NATIONS, Aug 9 (APP): Warning of the prospect of a long-term  civil war in Syria, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Thursday renewed his call for the international community to work together to resolve the ongoing crisis in the that country.We face the grim possibility of long-term civil war destroying Syria’s rich tapestry of interwoven communities. This would have tragic implications for Syria’s people and could affect stability across the region. We cannot let this prediction come true, Mr. Ban said in a message delivered on his behalf to an international consultative meeting on Syria, taking place in Tehran.All of us have a responsibility to the people of Syria. We must use all of the peaceful means in the UN Charter to help them unite around a Syrian-led transition process that is based on dialogue and compromise by all sides on the ground, not bullets, arrests, abductions and intimidation, he added.Syria has been wracked by violence, with an estimated 17,000 people, mostly civilians, killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began some 17 months ago. Over recent days, there have been reports of an escalation in violence in many towns and villages, as well as the country’s two biggest cities,Damascus and Aleppo, with the latter reportedly the centre of intense combat between Government and opposition forces, involving both aerial bombardments and heavy weaponry. In his message, the UN chief noted the General Assembly adopted a resolution last week, which stressed the importance of making rapid progress on a political transition and encouraged Member States to provide active support to this end.
