WikiLeaks founder: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey had secret deal in 2012 to topple Syrian government

Moscow, SANA – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said that leaked documents from Saudi ministries show that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey had a secret deal in 2012 to topple the Syrian government.

In an interview given to Rossiya-1 (Russia 1) TV channel published on Sunday, Assange said that the United States, France, and Britain had been involved in that deal, noting that the documents show an increasing degree of autonomy among the allies of the U.S. in the region, with these allies acting in a more aggressive manner and even going against the directives of the U.S. in some instances, despite the fact that in the past, Saudi Arabia had been considered a loyal servant of the U.S. in the Middle East.

WikiLeaks had begun releasing around half a million official Saudi documents and cables, including classified correspondence between Saudi Embassies and the Saudi Foriegn Ministries, in addition to Interior Ministry and General Intelligence Agency documents and reports.
