An official source in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday said that Saudi Arabia condemns and strongly denounces the attacks on Eastern Ghouta and the use of chemical weapons by Al Assad regime, which is a flagrant violation of the international laws.

The source clarified that this aggressive action is not aligned with the international efforts to resolve the Syrian crisis politically, in accordance with the principles of the Geneva 1 Declaration and the UN Security Council resolution (2254).
