UNITED NATIONS - The United States is waging a "diplomatic and humanitarian war" against Syria along with some other UN Security Council members, Syria's UN envoy said on Thursday.

Syria's UN Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari was also asked if he could confirm remarks that President Bashar Assad reportedly made in a phone conversation on Wednesday with UN chief Ban Ki-moon, that Damascus had ended all military operations.

He said it was "already a fact on the ground, the military and police operations stopped in Syria."
