Statement of the Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide, Mr. Adama Dieng, on the situation in Syria

The Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Mr. Adama Dieng, urges all leaders in the wider Middle East region to act responsibly and refrain from using or condoning any language that may escalate sectarian tensions and exacerbate the already disastrous violence in Syria, lead to further war crimes and crimes against humanity and fuel tensions between different groups both in Syria and elsewhere in the region.
