U.N. chief demands Security Council action on Syria

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon demanded on Wednesday that the Security Council take action in Syria on violations of international law as he reported to the body that none of the warring parties was adhering to U.N. demands for aid access.

In his second monthly report to the 15-member council on the implementation of a resolution demanding great humanitarian aid access in Syria, Ban said “none of the parties to the conflict have adhered to the demands of the Council.”

Syria eyes end of chemical arms monitoring mission; West disagrees

UNITED NATIONS, April 23 (Reuters) – Syria declared on
Wednesday that it is looking ahead to the dismantling of the
international mission overseeing the destruction of the
conflict-torn country’s chemical arsenal, though Western
officials say they want the team to keep working.

The statement came after Sigrid Kaag, head of the joint
mission of the United Nations and the Organization for the
Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), told the Security
Council that the Syrian government should be able to meet an
April 27 deadline to hand over all declared chemical agents.
