Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Saturday (October 31) that there will be no peace in Syria unless its embattled leader Bashar al Assad and Iranian forces quit the country, at a security summit in the Bahraini capital Manama.
Jubeir spoke at the 11th Manama Dialogue just a day after long awaited high level talks on the Syrian conflict took place in Vienna, Austria. He said although progress was made on finding a resolution to the fighting, fundamental disputes remain between the key parties involved.
"Where there were disagreements, they had to do with the two most fundamental issues. The first has to do with the timing of the departure of Bashar Assad, there was no agreement reached," Jubier said.
