He said that Riyadh is also doing its best to torpedo the Geneva talks, something that he described as the ultimate goal of the Saudi delegation.
"This purpose is in line with the US plans to destroy this region and create controlled chaos there. As for the immediate goal, it is related to the extension of the talks until a change [takes place] in the US government," he said, referring to the upcoming presidential polls in the US.
According to him, a number of Arab states supporting the armed groups in Syria expect a new US government "which will deal with the Syrian issue like George Bush Jr. dealt with Iraq."
"In this sense, Russia and China will be the only countries that will be able to stop them," Ali al-Ahmad emphasized.
The negotiations, which are being held in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 2254 on settling the Syrian conflict, are expected to last at least six months. They are being mediated by UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with the country's government fighting against multiple opposition factions and terrorist groups. The Geneva talks aim to bring together the Syrian government and opposition to settle the conflict between the sides.
