Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubair

NCRI - Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubair said his country is ready to send ground forces to Syria under the U.S. framework to fight terrorism.

Saudi Arabia and other Arabic countries in the region are ready to station special units in Syria alongside the U.S. in the fight against extremism and terrorism, he said in an interview with Süddeutsche Zeitung daily.

Member states of the Islamic coalition have announced their readiness in this regard, al-Jubeir continued.

In a reference to the Trump administration’s agenda that is scheduled to be comprised very soon, al-Jubeir indirectly supported the transfer of control of liberated areas from ISIS to Assad opponents.

“The main idea is to liberate areas currently under ISIS control and not allow them to fall under the control of Hezbollah, Iran or the [Assad] regime,” he added.

“We will agree with the U.S. on how to pursue this agenda and what is necessary to realize these plans,” al-Jubeir concluded.
