UN chief meets P5 on Syria


UNITED NATIONS,-- UN Secretary-general Ban Ki- moon on Thursday met with senior diplomats from the five permanent members of the Security Council, known as the P5, on the latest situation in Syria, discussing "possible diplomatic moves to end the crisis" in the Middle East country.

"The secretary-general invited the five permanent members of the Security Council (P5) to an informal meeting, for discussions on Syria," UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said at a daily news briefing here. "They discussed possible diplomatic moves to end the crisis."

During the meeting, Ban "briefed them on the latest developments relating to the chemical weapons investigation mission," Nesirky said, referring to the UN probe into the alleged use of chemical weapons in fightings in Syria on March 19.

Ban set up the UN investigation team last month at a formal request of the Syrian government. He has recently kept appealing to Damascus to allow the UN team into the country without delay or conditions for on-site investigations.

According to Nesirky, Ban and the P5 diplomats "also discussed the ever-worsening humanitarian situation inside Syria and the neighboring countries, and international efforts to alleviate it."

The Syrian crisis broke out in March 2011 and led to violent conflicts between the government forces and the armed opposition. The United Nations is working hard for a diplomatic solution to the prolonged crisis, which has so far killed some 70,000 people.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
