Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal addressed the second conference of the Friends of the Syrian People meeting in Turkey today. During his speech, Prince Saud stressed that the humanitarian sufferings of the Syrian people must be brought to an end.

“We are participating in this important meeting on the situation in Syria, following our previous meeting in Tunisia in February, in which we reviewed together as the friends of the Syrian people what we should have done to help this people to get out of the current ordeal,” Prince Saud said.

“One year has passed and we have prepared for one meeting after another and we are still running in our place while crimes against humanity have been increasingly aggravated against the Syrian people,” the Foreign Minister continued.  “At this time, we can look forward seriously to acceptable solutions that achieve and organize the peaceful transfer of power.”
