"I call on the members of the Security Council to unite and exercise that responsibility", Guterres said.

The United Nations Secretary-General, meanwhile, said he is closely watching reports related to the airstrikes on Syria conducted by three of its permanent members.

On April 7, the White Helmets, a civil defense agency, accused the Assad regime of an alleged chemical attack, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Stoltenberg will give a press briefing after the meeting.
