AFP , Friday 31 Aug 2012

UN chief Ban Ki-moon on Friday told Syria's prime minister in Tehran that fighting must stop in Syria "with the primary responsibility resting on the government to halt its use of heavy weapons."

In the meeting with Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halaqi and Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, Ban said he set out "my demands for all sides to cease all forms of violence," with Damascus bearing the greatest responsibility.
