Condemnation of attacks on Saudi Aramco oil plants continue

17 Septembre, 2019, 13:02 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

The weekend strikes on Abqaiq - the world's largest oil processing facility - and the Khurais oil field in eastern Saudi Arabia have roiled global energy markets with prices spiking Monday to record highs.

This image provided on September 15, 2019, by the USA government and DigitalGlobe and annotated by the source, shows damage to the infrastructure at Saudi Aramco's Abaqaiq oil processing facility in Buqyaq, Saudi Arabia.

Tehran rejected the claim but Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition was bogged down in a five-year war, claimed Saturday's strikes on two plants owned by Aramco.

Trump declared Monday it "looks" like Iran was behind the explosive attack on the Saudi oil facilities. "They should know that this policy has no value for us", said Khamenei, who has the last say on all state matters.

China also called on the United States and Iran to "exercise restraint.in the absence of a conclusive investigation or verdict". "You're a unsafe fool", he wrote. In response, Gabbard wrote, "Hey @realdonaldtrump: being Saudi Arabia's [expletive] is not 'America First, '" she wrote at the time. The U.S. military then released video and images that appear to show Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) removing a mine from the hull of one of the tankers, suggesting that Iran sought to remove evidence of its involvement.

General Motors auto workers call strike in US
UAW Vice President Terry Dittes said in a statement Sunday: "We stood up for General Motors when they needed us most". Employees at large firms nationwide pay about 34 percent, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Trump, alternating between aggressive and nonviolent reactions, said the USA could respond "with an attack many, many times larger" but also "I'm not looking at options right now".

Iran seems to have escalated aggressive actions in the region since the United States withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on much of the Iranian economy. Iran denies the charge.

In New York, the new USA ambassador to the United Nations, Kelly Craft, condemned the attack and said that "emerging information indicates that responsibility lies with Iran".

But tensions roiling the Persian Gulf have escalated following a weekend attack on major oil sites in Saudi Arabia that the USA alleged Iran was responsible for - a charge Iran denies.
