SOFIA - United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said on Thursday he had raised the issue of the possible violation of human rights with Syrian President Bashar Assad during a phone conversation a day earlier.

Ban said he had urged Assad to take decisive reform measures "before it was too late."

"I raised also the possible violation of human rights, and that human rights should be fully protected of those people, peaceful demonstrators," Ban told a news conference in the Bulgarian capital.
