AMMAN (Reuters) - Syria on Tuesday lambasted outgoing United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, saying that during his tenure he had hurt the world body's impartiality by taking sides in global conflicts.
State media quoted a source in Syria's foreign ministry as saying Ban had "repeatedly hurt the credibility of the United Nations and its objectivity and made himself a party to problems facing our world."
Ban, 72, of South Korea is due to step down at the end of 2016 after serving two terms.
