US Vice President Mike Pence held a private briefing on Tuesday for US Republican senators on the situation surrounding an attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia and a possible Washington administration retaliatory response, TASS reported.

According to Senator Lindsay Graham, Pence pointed to the goal of the US authorities, which is to restore the previous level containment of Tehran. The Republican believes that it was lost after Iran regarded the US President Donald Trump's restrained reaction to the unmanned aerial reconnaissance aircraft of the US Navy RQ-4, shot down in June by Iranian forces. As Trump said then, the United States was preparing to deliver targeted attacks on three targets in Iran, but 10 minutes before the operation began, he ordered that it not be carried out.
