During a session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on the human rghts situation in Syria, the Permanent Representative of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations (UN), Ambassador Abdallah Y. Al-Mouallimi, confirmed his country's call for more international community's work on "a full and comprehensive cease-fire in Syria." Mr. Al-Mouallimi welcomed the presentation made by Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, Chairman of the International Commission of Inquiry on Syria.
"Saudi Arabia also supports the findings of the Pinheiro's commission on Syria that asserted there is no solution but a peaceful solution," said the Saudi Ambassador. "The peaceful solution has been forged by the international will on the need to work to achieve a political transition process whereby a government with wide executive powers would be formed," Mr. Al-Mouallimi added.
In recent months, Saudi Arabia has been urging Friends of Syria to act promptly and assist the Syrian people "to enable them defend themselves," triggering further accusations by the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that Saudi Arabia has been providing the Syrian opposition with weapons therefore contradicting with its humanitarian appeal.
