THE HAGUE, Netherlands
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has pleaded for a diplomatic solution to the Syrian conflict, even as world powers appear to be moving toward punitive military strikes against President Bashar Assad’s regime for what the United States and its allies say was a deadly chemical weapons attack.

Ban said Wednesday a United Nation team investigating the alleged chemical attack must be given time to establish the facts.

And he has urged the United Nations Security Council not to be “missing in action” as the Syria crisis deepens.

Ban was speaking in the Great Hall of Justice at the Peace Palace in The Hague, which is marking its 100th anniversary.
