DUBAI: Saudi Arabia’s Cabinet on Tuesday has called on the international community to put an end to what it described as “aggressive and subversive Iranian policies,” Saudi Press Agency (SPA) has reported.
In a series of tweets in Arabic, the state news agency quoted the Saudi Cabinet saying “the international community has a great responsibility to put an end to the acts of aggressive and subversive Iranian policies.”
SPA also tweeted, quoting the Saudi Cabinet, that the “sabotage attack on the Aramco facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais, and the use of Iranian weapons is a threat to international peace and security, and an unjustified aggression on energy supplies to world markets.”
The attack caused an interruption of an estimated 5.7 million barrels in crude supplies and threatened the world economy.
King Salman on Monday has described the drone and missile attacks on Aramco facilities on Sept. 14 a “cowardly act” aimed at destabilizing the Kingdom and disrupting the world’s energy supply.
Britain, France, Germany and the United States have blamed Iran for the attacks, which Tehran has vehemently denied.
Meanwhile, in the interview with MSNBC, Jordan’s King Abdullah II stressed Jordan’s support for Saudi Arabia following the recent attacks on Aramco’s oil facilities.
The king reaffirmed the distinguished Jordanian-Saudi relations, highlighting that the security of Saudi Arabia is of the utmost importance to Jordan.
“We have an outstanding relationship with the Saudis. We are committed to their defense. Having said that, I think many of us over the past six months, if not more, have been trying to caution escalation and calm things down. And relatively that’s happened across the summer.
“Obviously the attack on Aramco has upped the ante. And this is a very important week in New York, where I think all of us are trying to figure out how to step away from the brink of war,” the king said.
