‘Blaming Iran won’t end disaster,’ says Iranian Foreign Minister

TEHRAN: Iranian Foreign Minister, Javad Zaraf on Sunday replied to US Secretary of the State Mike Pompeo, who earlier accused Iran of launching attacks at Saudi Arabia’s Aramco facility, that blaming Iran of attacks will not put an end to the disaster.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zaraf on Sunday used the famous microblogging site, Twitter, to reply Mike Pompeo, who directly accused Iran of the drone attacks on Saudi Arabian oil refinery, Aramco.

Having failed at ‘max pressure’, @SecPompeo’s turning to ‘max deceit’,” Zarif tweeted. “US and its clients are stuck in Yemen because of illusion that weapon superiority will lead to military victory. Blaming Iran won’t end disaster. Accepting our April ’15 proposal to end the war and begin talks may.”

The attacks on Saturday halted Saudi’s oil supply as almost 50 percent of the Kingdom’s oil production was hit. The drone attacks on the Saudi city of Abqaiq damaged Aramco’s oil facility. The Yemeni rebel group, Houthi, took the responsibility of the attacks.

As per European stock Gurus, the attacks could hit the International stock prices, the reaction could not have been evaluated as the International markets remained closed on Sunday. Whereas, Saudi stock market was plunged after the attacks. A record low of 2.3 percent was observed in the trading day.

Earlier on Saturday night, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State has directly accused Iran of the attacks on Saudi Arabian cities in a tweet. 

He directly launched a verbal attack on Iran by saying, “Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while Rouhani and Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy. Amid all the calls for de-escalation, Iran has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply. There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen,” in a tweet.
