Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Monday to reaffirm his support for the Syrian leadership, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Monday.
Abdel Aziz said his kingdom supports Syria in confronting “the conspiracy targeting [the country] and aimed at harming its security and stability,” the report said.
More than 30 people have been confirmed killed in a spiral of violence that has gripped Syria since protests broke out on March 15, with demonstrators demanding major reforms.
