Saudi Arabia attacking Turkey: We oppose incursion into Syria; support of extremists in Libya, Somalia

Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Adel Al-Jubeir, attacked Turkey, and confirmed that the kingdom opposes Turkey's incursion into Syria and its support for extremist militias in Libya and Somalia.

Al-Jubeir stressed, in a press conference, on the sidelines of his visit to the Romanian capital, Bucharest, to meet officials there on Thursday, "We are against Turkey's incursion into Syria, and we are against Turkey's support for militias in Somalia, Syria and Libya."

Al-Jubeir expressed his country's concern about the transfer of foreign mercenaries from Syria to Libya and there will be consequences for Europe, noting that "Saudi Arabia does not tend to a party on the expense of another in the Libyan conflict, and Haftar and Al-Sarraj told us the need to reach a political solution."

On Yemen, the Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs said: "We did not want war in Yemen, we intervened to stop Hezbollah and the Houthis, and we only want stability."

The Turkish intervention in Syria, Libya and several other countries has provoked regional and international anger.
