FILE - In this Friday, Sept. 27, 2013 file photo, the United Nations Security Council votes on a resolution that will require Syria to give up its chemical weapon, at U.N. Headquarters. Saudi Arabia is rejecting its seat on the U.N. Security Council and says the 15-member body is incapable of resolving world conflicts. The move came just hours after the kingdom was elected as one of the Council's 10 nonpermanent members. In a statement carried on Friday, Oct. 18, 2013 by the official Saudi Press Agency, the Saudi Foreign Ministry says the Council has failed in its duties toward Syria. (AP Photo/Craig Ruttle, File)
