Information Minister lashes out at Saudi Foreign Minister

Damascus, SANA – Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said it is shame for the countries that are involved in the bloodshed in Syria, Yemen and Iraq to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs.

Responding to statements made earlier by the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, Minister al-Zoubi said on Thursday that al-Jubeir, “who has no clue how diplomacy and politics work, should keep his mouth closed and keep his country out of a matter that is none of its business.”

He stressed that the Syrians have been known for their values, history and cultural heritage, “whereas al-Jubeir and his masters have been notorious for having the blood of Muslims and Arabs on their hands.”

Al-Zoubi stressed that the Saudi role in the crises in some Arab countries, such as Syria, Iraq and Yemen, has been the worst and the bloodiest of all.

“This shows how much Saudi Arabia is unentitled to make any positive constructive contribution to solving crises in the region,” said the Minister, adding that through its interference in other countries’ affairs, Saudi Arabia has violated the international law and the international legitimacy.
