Secretary-General Ban Ki -moon earlier urged a divided Security Council to unite and find a diplomatic solution to the Syrian conflict increases .

" Syria is the biggest challenge for the world to this time concerning war and peace . Council which has the task of maintaining international peace and security do not disappear , " said Ban , referring to the Security Council .

" Council should at least find unity to act , should use its authority to ( maintain ) peace , " Ban said .

"The people of Syria are entitled to a settlement , not silence , " he said .

" We have to find every possible effort to bring forward the relevant parties to the negotiating table , " he said .

He also warned that any move in terms of supplying weapons to one of the parties in Syria will only make things worse .

" To those who supply weapons to any parties , we must question : what has been achieved in addition to the weapons that more bloodshed ?

" Logic military has put a country on the verge of total collapse , the situation in the region into chaos and led to a global threat . Why should continue to add fuel and ignited a fire ? "

Ban said all perpetrators of chemical attacks will be tried , but the facts about it must first be ascertained .

UN inspectors had been " collecting valuable samples " and interviews with victims and witnesses since they arrived in the torn country .

" They need time to carry out their duties , " said Ban .
