Saudi Arabia attacks US foreign policy on Syria

During his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Friday former chief of Saudi intelligence Prince Turki al-Faisal accused American foreign policy as having "no sense of direction" and said that the US is "disengaging from the world."

Al-Faisal, who is the chairman of King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies, called for the UN to issue a resolution calling for Lebanese and Iraqi Shia militias to get out of "war torn" Syria.

Before the Economic Forum, Al-Faisal said that the world was "disappointed" by the fact that American foreign policy had "no sense of direction."

He said that he wanted the Americans to go to the United Nations Security Council to get a resolution to deploy international forces to stop the fighting in Syria. If that was impossible there should at least be a humanitarian corridor to supply food for people so that they don't starve to death.
