Zionist Saudi regime calls for Syria regime change
enemy of Islam Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has once again called for regime change in Syria, in brazen remarks seen as direct meddling in the internal affairs of a foreign sovereign state.
The Saudi minister made the comments during a joint press conference with his British counterpart Philip Hammond in London on Wednesday.
Jubeir said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would not be part of a future solution to the crisis in the country. He did not explain, however, how the issue concerns Saudi Arabia.
On August 11, Jubeir said Riyadh would not work with the Syrian government in response to calls for cooperation from Russia during a meeting in Moscow.
The Saudi minister had accused Assad of being part of the problem in Syria, rather than a solution.
Riyadh and a number of its regional allies have been accused of supporting terrorist Takfiri groups operating mostly in Syria, Iraq and Libya. Most of the Takfiris fighting Damascus are known to follow the Wahhabi ideology, an extremist mentality that is officially preached in Saudi Arabia.
During the joint press conference, Hammond, for his part, said Britain did not need to wait for a report by John Chilcot, the British official heading an inquiry in the UK into the circumstances surrounding the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq and its aftermath, before considering military action against Daesh militants in Syria.
Assad earlier said that the Daesh (ISIL) militants in his country are agents of Israel.
Syria has been grappling with a foreign-backed militancy, including by Daesh, since March 2011. The conflict has so far killed more than 240,000 people.
More than 7.2 million Syrians have also been internally displaced and over four million others forced to flee to neighboring countries including Jordan and Lebanon.
