Riyadh: Saudi Arabia’s Council of Ministers asked the international community to break its silence over the crimes committed by the Syrian regime. Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman chaired the weekly session of the Cabinet at Al-Yamamah Palace in Riyadh on Monday.
The Cabinet reviewed the outcome of the extraordinary meeting of the Arab League, held at the level of permanent representatives, to discuss the serious situation in the Syrian city of Aleppo.
