Saudi Arabia stressed on Wednesday its firm stance in preserving unity in Syria and maintaining security and peace.

The Kingdom expressed the hope that the conventions endorsed by the international resolutions for a ceasefire, delivery of humanitarian aid, and release of detainees are implemented.

The Saudi ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium Abdurrahman bin Sulaiman Al-Ahmad gave a speech at the Brussels Conference on the Future of Syria and the Region, which was held on Wednesday with the presence of representatives from more than 79 countries.

"The Kingdom has long sought to find peaceful solutions to the Syrian crisis since its inception and worked with the brotherly and friendly states to avoid a human tragedy. In this regard and on the basis of an international mandate, the spectrum of the Syrian opposition were invited to the Riyadh Conference during 8-10, December, 2015. This conference led to establishment of the supreme negotiations commission for the Syrian opposition forces and revolution. This commission was regionally and internationally welcomed at the time," he said.

Al-Ahmad added that Saudi stresses its support for the efforts of UN Secretary-General's envoy Stephan de Mistura to find a peaceful political solution to the Syrian crisis without President Bashar Assad.
