• SAUDIS CALLS FOR STOP TO ARAB LEAGUE SYRIA TALKS

    0

    CAIRO: Saudi Arabia has urged the indefinite postponement of an Arab League meeting on Syria that Riyadh itself called, the group’s deputy chief Ahmed Ben Helli said on Friday. The meeting of foreign ministers was originally called for Monday by Riyadh, which backs rebels in the conflict, to discuss “steps that need to be taken to deal with the Syrian tragedy.” But the Saudis have now indefinitely postponed what was originally billed as an emergency gathering that they were going to host without saying why, and no new date has been set for it. More than 150,000 people are estimated to have been killed in Syria since the start of the armed uprising against Assad’s rule in 2011.
