Saudi cabinet says oil stations attack threatens global energy supplies
The Saudi cabinet said that sabotage operations against two East-West oil pipeline pumping stations on Tuesday targeted not only the Kingdom but the security of global oil supplies and the world economy, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz chaired the cabinet session that was held in al-Salam Palace in Jeddah.
The cabinet stressed in a statement “the importance of standing against all terrorist organizations that carry out such acts of sabotage, including Iranian-backed Houthi militias” in Yemen.
The ministers also condemned the sabotage operations that targeted Sunday commercial vessels off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
The “terrorist attack” was a threat to maritime safety, it said, adding that it reflected poorly on regional and international security.
