Ban Ki-moon criticized the Syrian recurrent violence

The bloody suppression of demonstrations by the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad has drawn criticism from many countries. The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, has called for "an independent, transparent and effective implementation of the massacres." According to the statement released by the United Nations, its secretary general condemned the "recurrent violence" against "peaceful protesters in Syria, which has killed too many people," while urging the regime in Damascus to "immediate end" to this repression.

Assad Ban reminded of their obligation to respect international law, including the right to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and the press. The presidents and foreign ministers of many countries have reacted strongly, sometimes angrily, to the "extreme violence exerted by the Syrian security forces," said Foreign Minister Gallo, Alain Juppe, said in a statement.

Thus, the European diplomat, Catherine Ashton, has considered "unacceptable and appalling" use of "brutal force against demonstrators" and considered "essential" that Damascus starts "deep political reforms." The Spanish government has condemned the violent crackdown on protesters and said that "noted with disappointment that the announced political reform promises have not translated into action, with the exception of the repeal of the state of emergency." It also makes an urgent appeal to the Syrian authorities "to cease the repression and initiate the necessary steps to accommodate the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people and ensure respect for human rights." France, which administered the area since the end of World War I until the independence of Syria in 1946 - urged the Syrian authorities to renounce the use of violence and warned that "the perpetrators of these crimes must be held accountable ".

"Only an inclusive political dialogue and reform to meet the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people can afford to preserve the stability of the country in the interest of everyone," said the minister. "This blind and brutal repression contradicts the lifting of emergency rule," reported the French foreign minister, who then called for respect of "rights and fundamental freedoms" and particularly "the right of peaceful protest and freedom of press.

" Washington also condemned the Friday night "in the strongest terms the use of force by the Syrian government against demonstrators." In a note, Obama warned that "resorting to violence to counter the demonstrators must stop immediately." The U.S. leader Basad accused of seeking help from Tehran.

For its part, the German government has "condemned with the utmost harshness" violence "against peaceful demonstrators in Syria," said Foreign Minister, Guido Westerwelle. The violence is "unacceptable" and "must cease immediately." His British counterpart, William Hague, also saw last night that the deaths are "unacceptable" and called "security forces to give proof of containment and repression before the Syrian authorities to respect the right of people to demonstrate peacefully." Rome also pointed out that "the right to demonstrate peacefully must be respected." "We strongly condemn the violent crackdown against demonstrators," said Italian Foreign Ministry.

Privileged partner of Syria, Russia has called for an acceleration of reforms in Syria and expressed its concern over the "innocent" victims "suffering."
