In a series of tweets, the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Iran for the drone attack that damaged Saudi Aramco’s refinery and processing plant located at Abqaiq and Khurais in the eastern part of the country on 14th September.
We call on all nations to publicly and unequivocally condemn Iran’s attacks. The United States will work with our partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain well supplied and Iran is held accountable for its aggression
— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) September 14, 2019
Attacking Iran for their alleged support to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, Secretary Pompeo said that Iran is responsible for more than 100 attacks that have taken place in Saudi Arabia and for disrupting the global energy market.
He also reiterated US support to ensure that the global energy market is stable and uninterrupted.
