Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal on Sunday urged Arab countries to back calls by the Syrian opposition for strikes on the Damascus regime. He made the remarks at a news conference in Cairo ahead of a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers to discuss the Syria crisis. The meeting comes a day after US President Barack Obama said he will seek congressional approval for punitive strikes on the Syrian regime over its alleged use of chemical weapons last month that killed hundreds.
