UN chief warns of Syria crisis repercussions for the world

PanARMENIAN.Net - UN chief Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday, March 21 Syria's crisis was highly alarming and had "massive repercussions" for the world, as heavy fighting raged in the Syrian capital Damascus, according to Reuters.

"We do not know how events will unfold. But we do know that we all have a responsibility to work for a resolution of this profound and extremely dangerous crisis," Ban said in a speech in the Indonesian capital Jakarta.

Syria lies in a pivotal position at the heart of a web of regional conflicts in the Middle East, comprising a mix of faiths, sects and ethnic groups, and diplomats fear the 12-month uprising is degenerating into a full-blown civil war.

Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have made gains against rebels around the country in recent weeks, but the violence shows no sign of abating, with reports on Wednesday of several army offensives.
