Saudi Arabia announced Tuesday it will cancel its scheduled speech at the United Nations General Assembly this week to protest the new soft glove approach of the United Nations and the United States towards Iran and Syria.
Citing sources in Saudi Arabia, the Italian ANSA news agency reported that Riyadh is unhappy over President Barack Obama’s holding a 15-minute conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rohani.
Saudi Arabia also is outraged over President Obama’s turning dovish on Syria’s use of chemical weapons which it fears will be used by Syrian President Bassar al-Assad “to impose more killing and to torture its people,” according to Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal.”Jewish Press News Briefs
