The regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday called on the UN Security Council to class the jihadist Al-Nusra Front as an Al-Qaeda-linked group, state news agency SANA said.

In a letter to the United Nations, the Syrian foreign ministry said it "expects the Security Council to fulfil its role and preserve global security," the agency added.
