UNITED NATIONS - Syrian President Bashar Assad, who has pledged to reform the country and engage in a dialogue with demonstrators, is running low on credibility, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday.

"I do not see much credibility (in) what he has been saying, because the situation has been continuing like this way, and how long should the situation be going (on in) this way," Ban told reporters when asked how credible he considered Assad's pledges of reform and other statements to be.
