UAE official: Saudi Aramco attacks are a dangerous escalation
Attacks on oil plants in Saudi Arabia are a dangerous escalation and the international community should stand by Riyadh and ensure regional stability, a senior United Arab Emirates official said on Tuesday, Trend reports with reference to Reuters.
Saudi Arabia said initial findings indicated Saturday’s attacks that cut half the kingdom’s oil output were carried out with Iranian weapons. Riyadh said it was capable of responding forcefully and urged U.N. experts to help investigate the raid.
“Justifying the unprecedented terrorist attack on Aramco facilities on the basis of developments on the Yemen war is completely unacceptable,” Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said in a tweet, responding to Iranian comments that the strikes were carried out by Yemenis in response to the war.
