    Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are condoning terrorism which is destroying Syria, Syrian presidential adviser Bouthaina Shaaban said on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — All the three countries enumerated by the adviser are backing the so-called moderate Syrian opposition and are demanding the resignation of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

    "Syria paid a tremendous price of destruction, deaths. All that befell on each Syrian family. We in Syria see that Saudi Arabia and Qatar, as well as Turkey, are condoning what is basically a US plan and are supporting terrorism which destroys our country," Shaaban said at a press conference in the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.
