UN Ki-moon questions Assad's credibility

"U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says he doesn't see "much credibility" in Syrian President Bashar Assad's promises of reforms because of his failure to allow peaceful demonstrations and to respond to the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people.

Ban said unified action by the U.N. Security Council, which is deeply divided over a resolution that would condemn the Syrian crackdown on protesters, "would be helpful."

Asked about promises of reform by Assad and his foreign minister, the secretary-general said "I do not see much credibility of what he has been saying because the situation has been continuing"
