Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir reiterated the Kingdom’s determination to continue extending its full support to the Syrian people “in securing their rights and freedom, and bringing the changes that they aspired for to their country.”
In a press statement following a meeting with the UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura in Riyadh on Tuesday, Al-Jubeir said that “the UN envoy’s visit to the Kingdom is an opportunity to consult and exchange views on pushing the Syrian peace process on the basis of the principles of Geneva 1, Vienna’s meetings and New York’s recent meetings.”
Al-Jubeir stressed that there could be no future role for Assad in Syria.
Al-Jubeir said the UN envoy briefed him on the outcomes of his meetings with the Syrian opposition in Riyadh regarding formation of negotiating team. Al-Jubeir added that they discussed the next steps for the peace process to reach a peaceful solution in Syria. (Source: Agencies)
