article imageSaudi Arabia: Al-Qaeda linked terrorists should be armed

By Saunon Malek     Jun 27, 2013 in World
Saudi Arabia's foreign minister stated that the al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists in Syria must be armed, but weapon shipments to al-Assad's regime must be halted.
In a conference on Tuesday with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Prince Saud al-Faisal advocated for further economic and military support of the foreign-sponsored militants in Syria.
Additionally, he called "for issuing an unequivocal international resolution to halt the provision of arms” to the Syrian government."
He reiterated Riyadh's stance on Syria, claiming they "cannot be silent" while Hezbollah, Iran, Russia, and China actively support and participate in al-Assad's affairs.
Saudi Arabia has played a key role in supporting the foreign-sponsored militant groups within Syria, through both financial and military aid. Other nations such as Turkey, Qatar, Israel, and the U.S. have also supported the Syrian rebels, in an effort to topple Bashar al-Assad.
With the recent escalation in arming of both contending parties of the Syrian conflict, the crisis has been pushed farther from being anywhere near solved. The two year conflict has claimed the lives of more than 90,000 people - both civilians and military personnel - and the death toll still continues to rise, day by day.
