W.H. on Saudi Arabia: We ‘Condemn Any Country Carrying out Mass Executions’
UNKNOWN FEMALE: "Just to be clear, does the White House condemn these executions?"
EARNEST: "We have raised significant concerns about the human rights environment in Saudi Arabia. Carrying out mass executions, I think, is a prime example of a government not doing enough to address the legitimate concerns expressed by the international community about human rights situations inside their own country. The State Department put out a report detailing concerns the U.S. Has with Saudi Arabia’s human rights record. Certainly, mass executions would rate highly in that list of concerns and we certainly would condemn any country carrying out mass executions."
