The Saudis were displeased that the U.S. backed off threats of military strikes against Syria in response to its alleged use of chemical weapons. In Egypt, Washington has been critical of the military after it toppled President Mohammed Morsi, while Saudi Arabia has strongly backed the coup, giving billions of dollars to the new army-backed government.

Saudi Arabia's reversal surprised U.N. diplomats and officials who had just welcomed the kingdom to a two-year term on the U.N.'s most powerful body for the first time. Several noted that the Saudis were lobbying for support right up until the vote.

So, what's new?
Saudi Arabia is a rogue country which is friendly with America and is always on it side. Saudi wanted USA to attack Syria, but USA refused to attack just for fun ... and said only if there is enough reason it will attack Syria. Saudi is trying to show its 'anger'.
