Saudi State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Adel al-Jubeir said the Kingdom condemns the Turkish incursion in northeastern Syria and demands an immediate end to the military operations.

He was speaking at an emergency Arab League meeting in Cairo to address Ankara’s operation in Syria.

The Turkish offensive deepens the suffering of the Syrian people, Jubeir continued.

The attack will negatively impact the security of the region, he added, stressing that Saudi Arabia supports a political solution to the conflict in Syria.

It also demands the withdrawal of all foreign militias from its territory, he stated.

United Arab Emirates States Minister for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash also demanded an end to the operation.

All Turkish and foreign forces that have swept through Syria must withdraw, he demanded.
