UN chief urges security council to act on Syria


UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Monday appealed to the Security Council to act with “seriousness” on Syria, where he said the situation has become “unacceptable.”

“The situation has reached an unacceptable point,” Ban told reporters on the sidelines of an energy summit in Abu Dhabi.

“I sincerely hope that the Security Council will handle this in a sense of seriousness and gravity and in a coherent manner,” he said.
