Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan says that Saudi Arabia is playing a role in ending the 11-month conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Speaking to Bloomberg TV in Switzerland, he said that our aim is to find a solution to end the conflict.
The Saudi Foreign Minister expressed the view that the only solution to the conflict is negotiation and everyone will agree to it.
He said that the Arab state is urging all parties to find a solution soon.
Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan refused to give details of the measures taken by Riyadh, saying that it would not be helpful to state such a thing at this time.
He acknowledged that the two sides were still far from a diplomatic solution to the conflict.
He said that we talked about stabilization of oil and gas prices with Russia.
The Saudi foreign minister said that the US is the most active security partner in the region, but China’s importance as a trade partner remains.
On the issue of Syria, he said that the countries of the region should work together for a political solution to the 12-year civil war.
