The Saudi Foreign Minister’s comment on the US’s use of a “veto” against the ceasefire in Gaza was circulated.


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CNN) — Activists took to social media to blast Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan’s statement on the situation in Gaza and the United States using its veto to vote on a ceasefire resolution. .

The Saudi minister’s statement came during an interview with the PBS channel and published by the Saudi al-Eqbariya channel, where he was asked: “The US used its veto power against the Security Council resolution. Does that mean they didn’t listen to you? ?”, to which Prince Faisal bin Farhan replied: “Unfortunately , we see a situation where… “We see that ceasefire is seen as a bad word, and frankly I can’t understand that.”

The prince continued: “When there is a conflict on the international stage, we usually find a way to end the conflict, so we are disappointed that the Security Council has not been able to take a firmer stand. We certainly do not agree with the United States that this decision is unconscionable.”

On Friday, the United States used its veto during a UN Security Council vote against a draft resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

Robert Wood, deputy US representative to the council, said the US had used its veto against the draft resolution because it did not mention attacks by the Hamas movement against Israel.
