Saudis at Gulf Cooperation Council

The Saudi foreign minister Prince Saud al Faisal, seated, at last month's meeting of six foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council in Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where they discussed measures to aid Syrian rebels. Saudi anger over the United States' reluctance to intervene in the Syrian civil war and Washington's recent diplomatic contacts with Tehran are believed to be behind the kingdom's decision to reject a seat on the U.N. Security Council.
