Tehran considers the US allegations that the country was involved in attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia unfounded and rejects these allegations, said the official representative of the Iranian MFA Abbas Mousavi.
According to him, Iran has explicitly stated that it supports the resistance of the people of Yemen against the coalition led by Saudi Arabia, but such statements against Tehran are nothing more than an attempt to exert maximum pressure on our country from the US, TASS reported.
On September 14, Pompeo accused Iranian authorities of involvement in attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. On Sunday, US Senator Lindsey Graham suggested that US authorities consider striking Iran’s oil facilities due to an attack on Saudi national oil company Saudi Aramco.
On the night of September 14, Saudi Aramco enterprises in the east of the country were attacked by 10 unmanned aerial vehicles. The responsibility for this was claimed by the Yemen's Houthi rebels. In particular, the largest oil refinery complex in the world near the city of Abqaiq, where many Western experts live, as well as an oil refinery in the Khurais region, in which the kingdom's second-largest oil field is located, was attacked. After the attacks on them, a strong fire broke out. According to authorities, the fire was localized.
