The access of terrorist groups to chemical weapons in Syria poses the greatest threat to the Middle East, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday said at the UN General Assembly.

Rouhani warned that the use of force in Syria, such as that suggested by the US in response to reports of the Assad regime's use of poison gas on civilians, would only lead to further exacerbation of violence.
