The UN condemns Damascus "immediate end to the violence"

The "immediate cessation of violence" and strongly condemned the "widespread violations of human rights and the use of force against civilians by the Syrian authorities." Here are some of the passages in the text of the sentence approved by the UN Security Council - but Lebanon has disassociated - the violent crackdown by the Assad regime in Syria.

A statement, not a resolution as they wanted the Europeans and the United States. Decision, it was adopted to avoid a veto by Russia and China who also wanted the document had eliminated all references to an inquiry of the UN Human Rights Council on violence of recent days. The Council has met at UN Headquarters for the third consecutive day in an attempt to break the deadlock on the Syrian crisis.

The document also calls for "an immediate halt to the violence and urges both parties to act with utmost restraint and to refrain from reprisals, including attacks on state institutions."
