France: We share Saudis frustration with Security Council

The French Foreign Ministry said Paris shares Saudi Arabia's "frustration" after the latter declined a seat on the UN Security Council, claiming it possesses a "double standard" on resolving conflicts, including the Syrian civil war.

 

"We share their frustration after the paralysis of the Security Council," a foreign ministry spokesman said, and added France is pushing for reforms on the veto right in the Council. (AFP)
