UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in a reportedly tense meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem on Tuesday, renewed calls to end the violence in Syria, the UN affirmed.

He also repeated his call "for a genuine process to fulfill the legitimate aspirations of the people for comprehensive political change," according to the secretary-general's spokesperson.

The nature of the meeting was allegedly tense, in which the Syrian foreign minister reportedly used "undiplomatic language" leaving Ban "deeply angry," according to London-based Arabic daily Al Hayat, which quoted unnamed diplomatic sources.
