UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told President Shimon Peres Wednesday he was worried about the possible military aspects of Iran's nuclear program, laid out in a recent IAEA report, and called on Iran to prove that the program is peaceful.

Peres added that Iran's reach was wider, and that weapons from the Islamic Republic were making their way into Gaza.

Addressing the violence in Syria, Ban said that the world cannot stand idly by while innocent people are killed daily.
