‘Act now to halt Syria genocide’
Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal has urged the international community to unify ranks and immediately change its policy on Syria, where the war continues to worsen unabated within its borders.
“The least the world can do is prevent the systematic genocide of innocent people and ensure international protection to them,” said Prince Saud.
“The world must unify to prevent the delivery of weapons to the Syrian government,” said the prince in the editorial he wrote for “The Diplomat,” a bi-monthly official journal owned and distributed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Prince Saud called on the international community to affirm that the Assad regime has lost all legitimacy when it refused the modest demands of its people and instead launched a genocidal war against them. “It became further isolated when it lost its membership at the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation,” he said.
Prince Saud lamented that dozens of Syrians die every day before the eyes of the world because the victims are denied the right to defend themselves.
