Saudi Arabia has threatened to use military force against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if ongoing political talks fail to bring peace to the conflict-stricken nation.

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir made the announcement following an International Syria Support Group (ISSG) meeting held in Vienna on Tuesday.

“We believe we should have moved to a ‘Plan B’ a long time ago,” he added.”The choice about moving to an alternative plan, the choice about intensifying the military support (to the opposition) is entirely with the Bashar regime.”
