The ministry's political director further called on Syria to comply with the related UN Human Rights Council’s resolution and provide cooperation throughout an international investigation of the incident in Houla in which more than 100 people were reportedly killed late last month.

Michalko also urged Syria to cease all violence and resume political dialogue, TASR wrote.
