Thursday 13 December 2012

MARRAKESH, Morocco: Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal reiterated Saudi Arabia’s recognition of the National Coalition as the sole representative of Syrians but emphasized the need for greater unity among opposition groups to mobilize international support.

Addressing a “Friends of Syria” meeting in Morocco, he announced the Kingdom’s donation of $ 100 million to alleviate the suffering of Syrian people, adding that the amount would be given to the National Coalition.
Prince Saud denounced the regime of Bashar Assad for intensifying its military campaign against unarmed civilians.

He said the regime’s threat to use chemical weapons would have dangerous consequences.
The Saudi minister called upon all Syrian opposition groups to unite under one leadership, adding that the National Coalition should protect the rights of all people.

“The unity of opposition will help remove the justification for the continuation of division among the international community toward the Syrian issue,” he said.
