Saudi Arabia reiterated on Tuesday its strong condemnation of the Syrian regime for carrying out chemical attacks in Eastern Ghouta.

The cabinet slammed the attack as a blatant violation of international law.

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz chaired the government session held in Riyadh.

The chemical attacks hinder international efforts aimed at resolving the Syrian crisis through political means, it added.

King Salman then briefed the ministers on the meetings he held with Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and a delegation from the British Conservative Party.

Information Minister Dr. Awad bin Saleh al-Awad told the Saudi Press Agency after the cabinet session that the gatherers hailed King Salman for the speech he delivered at the 32nd Al-Janadriyah Festival.

In it, he underlined the importance of cultures as a main component in the formation of nations and their values.

Their diversity and distinctive characteristics is a requirement for coexistence between people and achievement of peace between countries. Bolstering culture is important for international peace and security, he stressed.
