'The United Nations and its partners are doing all we can inside and outside of Syria. But we have to ask if we have done enough, and if we have done the right thing'. (Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in remarks to the General Assembly on Syria, New York, 4 Sept '12)
It is a public secret that Ban Ki-moon, who has been posted twice to the Republic of Korea embassy in Washington, D.C. and served as Director-General for American Affairs in 1990–1992, is a very good personal friend of president Obama.
It is therefore that he remains silent about the secret order signed by America's president Obama authorizing U.S. support for the terrorists and armed groups in Syria seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.
It is therefore that he remains silent about the increase of Britain's support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million)'.
The UN is an instrument of the US and its allies (NATO, Saudi Arabia, Israel,) and as the Director of the Russian Center for Analyzing World Arms Trade, Igor Korotchenko, said 'they are responsible for the victims and suffering in Syria'. By arming terrorists they rejects a solution.
The statements of Ban Ki Moon are a good example of the western hypocrisy.
