    Saudi Arabia Rejects Seat on UN Security Council


    Saudi Arabia, October 18 (Associated Press) – Saudi Arabia is rejecting its seat on the UN Security Council and says the 15-member body is incapable of resolving world conflicts.

    The move came just hours after the kingdom was elected as one of the Council's 10 nonpermanent members.

    In a statement carried on Friday by the official Saudi Press Agency, the Saudi Foreign Ministry says the Council has failed in its duties toward Syria.

    It says this alleged failure enabled Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime to perpetrate the killings of its people, including with chemical weapons, without facing any deterrents or punishment.

    The Ministry also says the Council has not been able to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict over the past decades and has failed to transform the Middle East into a zone free of weapons of mass destruction

    The real reason is that they don't get the smell of the camel there!

    or maybe they were worried that this might happen, the US being a mixed national body

    its just a tactic to put pressure on the UNSC on the Syrian civil war .

    All the same the newly elected members would replace Azerbaijan, Guatemala, Morocco, Pakistan and Togo on Jan. 1.
