Saudi king slams Russia, China for vetoing Syria resolution

Saudi Arabia's ruler King Abdullah has criticized China and Russia for blocking a UN Security Council resolution against Syria.

King Abdullah on Friday described Moscow and Beijing's decision to veto the anti-Syria resolution as an “unfavorable move” that undermined world confidence at the United Nations.

“What took place (at the UN Security Council) does not augur well... World confidence in the United Nations has undoubtedly been shaken," King Abdullah said in a short televised speech.

"No matter how powerful, countries cannot rule the whole world. The world is ruled by brains, by justice, by morals and by fairness," the Saudi ruler said referring to China and Russia. He however, did not single out the two countries by name.

King Abdullah's criticism against Russia and China and accusing them of blocking attempts to end violence in Syria comes as Saudi troops are brutally suppressing anti-government protesters east of the kingdom and helping Bahrain in its deadly crackdown on peaceful demonstrators.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are accused of fueling unrest in Syria by arming and funding terrorist groups to battle the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Earlier this week the members of six-nation [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council, including Saudi Arabia, expelled Syrian ambassadors from their capitals and recalled their own envoys from Damascus to protest what they called Syrian government violence against its civilians.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March and many people have lost their lives in the violence.

The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing protesters. But Damascus blames ''outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups'' for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
