Saudi Foreign Minister: UN veto on Syria is prolonged brutality

Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal on Saturday told his Arab and Russian counterparts that a Russian-Chinese veto of a UN resolution condemning Syria allowed the regime’s “brutality” to continue.

The stand of “the countries that thwarted the UN Security Council resolution and voted against the resolution of the General Assembly on Syria gave the Syrian regime a licence to extend its brutal practices against the Syrian people, without compassion or mercy,” he said.
