Saudi Arabia urges UN action over Syria regime 'massacres'


syrians killed in chemical attackThe Saudi government on Monday urged the U.N. Security Council to take “deterrent” action against the Syrian regime’s “massacres” and its alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people, AFP reported on Monday.

The call comes amid high-level consultations in Western capitals on an international response to last week’s suspected chemical weapons attack outside Damascus.

The kingdom “urges the international community represented by the U.N. Security Council to take up its responsibilities towards the tragedies and terrible massacres committed by the (Syrian) regime against its people using… arms that include internationally banned chemical weapons.”

The Saudi cabinet at its weekly meeting warned against the “lack of a clear and firm decision that puts an end to these heinous massacres,” in a statement carried by the official SPA news agency.
