Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 18

By Elnur Baghishov - Trend:

Following the US allegations against Iran regarding involvement in attacks on two oil facilities of Saudi Arabia, Tehran has sent a political note to the US, Trend reports citing Mehr news agency.

The message was sent on Sept. 16 via the Swiss embassy, which looks after the US affairs in Iran.

Tehran, in the message, has strongly dismissed any involvement in Yemeni raids, also warning of any anti-Iranian measure after the incident.

The message condemned remarks of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo along with other US officials against Iran, warning that in case of any aggression against the Islamic Republic, Iran’s response will be prompt and strong and it may include broader areas than the source of attacks.

Yemen’s forces have claimed responsibility for the attack on two Saudi Aramco oil facilities on Sept. 14, but the US rejected their claim and President Donald Trump said that Iran appeared to be responsible for the strike.
