UK’s Foreign Secretary William Hague has called to put an end to the Syrian conflict as soon as possible, citing an increase in violence in this war-torn region.

He slammed the Assad regime over total impunity with which it was reportedly acting as violence in the country keeps escalating.

Mr. Hague said Britain had earlier agreed with its allies to double efforts for Syrian peace and boost help to the Syrian opposition fighters.
