The UN Security Council should immediately intervene in the situation in Syria and show unity, Secretary General of UN Ban KI-moon stated, RIA Novosti reported.
"The UN Security Council should intervene as today Syria is the most severe test of security in the whole world. The Security Council should find a unanimous way to react immediately and achieve peace, otherwise we will get an entire generation of mothers, children and young people and it will be a lost generation. Our shared principles of humanity should immediately react to the tragedy which occurs in Syria," Ban Ki-moon said while speaking on Russia 24 TV.
The UN Secretary General called all the parties of the Syrian conflict to stop fighting and give diplomats a chance.
"I say stop fighting and give a chance to diplomats. Let's listen to what the UN calls for. We should ask what weapons have been given to them other than bloodshed. Currently the region is on the way to complete destruction.
"Chaos is taking place. We should make every effort to bring the parties to the negotiating table. The League of Arab Nations continues its efforts," he said.
The situation in Syria escalated in recent days after reports about chemical attacks that broke out on August 21 near Damascus.
On Tuesday evening it became known that U.S. president Barrack Obama still thinks about measures which should be the response to the Syrian government for the alleged chemical attack near Damascus.
The decision about a military strike has not yet been adopted, but the Pentagon has approved several variants of intervention including being forceful into the conflict and are under consideration. Several Western countries have already stated that they are ready to intervene in the Syrian conflict even bypassing the decision of UN Security Council.
