Saudi Arabia deplores world’s inaction on Syria
Saudi’s Foreign Minister reiterated at the U.N. that Assad has ‘no place in Syria’s future’
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister reiterated that there is “no other political solution except the principles of the Geneva I agreement” regarding Syria, in a speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday.
Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that tragic conflict in Syria, which is entering its fifth year, has devolved into the worst humanitarian disaster of the current era.
“Yet, the international community continues to be unable to save the Syrian people from the killing machine that is being operated by Bashar al-Assad,” he said.
Jubeir added that “there is no place for Bashar al-Assad” in a transitional phase in Syria’s future.
Saudi Arabia’s highest diplomat opened his address on Thursday evening by focusing on the Palestinian question. He noted that the Palestinian people deserve to live in dignity and urged action to that end that is in line with relevant Security Council resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
Regarding the crisis in Yemen, Jubeir said that military intervention in Yemen came at the request of the Yemeni government, and that the restoration of Aden and the return of the internationally recognized government of President Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi was a major step in restoring stability.
