An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs explained the inaccuracy of the statements attributed to the Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir by some media sources.

The source confirmed Saudi Arabia's firm position regarding Syrian crisis, in accordance with a solution based on Geneva I Declaration and UN Security Council Resolution 2254 to establish a transitional entity; in order to manage the affairs of the state, draft a new constitution for Syria, and prepare for elections to build a new future for Syria without Bashar Al-Assad.

The official source also reaffirms the Kingdom's support of the Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee and the procedures it is considering in order to expand participation of its members and achieve a unified front among the opposition.
