According to the UN report, clashes between Syrian government and opposition forces have increasingly risen since early last year, resulting in over 60, 000 deaths.
Over 130 countries recognize opposition groups headed by the The National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces as the legitimate representative of Syrian people.
According to Iran and Russia, the crisis in Syria should be solved in a peaceful way and through negotiations held only among Syrian people.
Iran considers the Syrian crisis was caused artificially by foreign countries in order to undermine the resistance front against Israel.
