US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned Iran after Saturday's attacks, which knocked out half of Saudi Arabia's oil production.

He said there was "no evidence the attacks came from Yemen", though he did not offer any evidence for his theory of an Iranian strike.

BAGHDAD today denied any link to drone attacks on Saudi oil plants, after media speculation that the strikes were launched from Iraq despite being claimed by Yemeni rebels.

"The United States Government is monitoring the situation and remains committed to ensuring global oil markets are stable and well supplied", the USA statement said.

"Such remarks. are more like plotting by intelligence and secret organisations to damage the reputation of a country and create a framework for future actions", he said.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that blaming Tehran for Houthi attacks on Saudi targets would not bring an end to the Yemen war, but talks might.

"The genie is out of the bottle", said Bill Farren-Price, director of the London-based RS Energy Group.

"It is now clear that Saudi and other Gulf oil facilities are vulnerable to this kind of attack, which means that the geopolitical risk premium for oil needs to rise". "For now, markets are well supplied with ample commercial stocks", it said in a tweet.

It is an extraordinary charge to make, that Iran used missiles and drones to attack its neighbor and rival Saudi Arabia, as the region teeters on the edge of high tensions.
