According to President Donald Trump, Saudi Arabia could providing the core funding for reconstructing the Syrian Arab Republic.

Over the last seven years, Saudi Arabia has spent more than 500 billion dollars to bring down the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The only reason Saudi Arabia had criticized him was because he was not Sunni. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia was willing to accept that the Republic remains intact and that his vice president succeeds him.

The Saudi decision was taken after the Sudanese President, Omar al-Béchir, paid a visit to Damascus.
