BEIJING - Leaders of a bloc grouping China, Russia and Central Asian states called on Thursday for dialogue to address the violence in Syria, a likely indicator that little will change at discussions at the United Nations on the crisis.

"The Shanghai group member states are against military interference in the affairs of this region (Middle East and North Africa), enforced 'handover of power', unilateral sanctions," a joint statement from leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization said.

The comments mean that there is likely to be little change in discussions at the UN Security Council on Syria, even after a troops and militamen loyal to President Bashar Assad were accused by opponents of a new massacre of scores of villagers.
