Secretary General of United Nations (UN) Ban Ki Moon demanded UN to be given full power to probe use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Evaluating the recent developments in investigating the use of chemical weapons in Syria, Ban said the team started to work in Syria as of Monday by virtue of a five-month effort.

"The delegation will probe for 14 days in accordance with the agreement reached with Syrian Government. The duration can be extended by mutual agreement," Ban said.

Stating that the delegation is to work in three regions, Ban said "The mission must be allowed to enter the regions where chemical weapons allegedly were used to reach reliable conclusions."

Ban, noting that "the security conditions in the country would affect the mission" said "In spite of all these conditions, I have complete confidence in Ake Sellström and his team."

He also said that the delegation would firstly investigate the samples and take decisions by collecting the information.
