In a joint statement, three powerful European nations, United Kingdom, France and Germany says it is very clear Iran was behind Saudi Arabia oil refinery attack that destroyed its two major facilities. Emmanuel Macron, Angela Markel and Boris Johnson all met at this years UNGA in New York city on Monday 23rd of September 2019. According to the leaders, there was no other further explanations for the attacks that shut down half of Saudi Arabia Aramco oil facility. But Iran’s foreign Minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif accused them of taking the sides of influential United states of America. Javad said they were “parroting absurd US claims”
Yemen Houthi rebels said they were responsible for the attack on 14th of September that destroyed Aramco oil facilities. Eighteen drones and seven cruise missiles hit Saudi Arabia oil processing facility middle of September. Saudi Arabia and the United states had earlier blamed Iran for the attack. The United States has sent about 5oo troops to Saudi Arabia to secure further attacks in the region.
“It is clear to us that Iran bears responsibility in this attack. There is no plausible explanation. We support ongoing further investigations to establish further details. The time has come for Iran to accept on a long term framework for its nuclear programme as well as on issues relating to regional security, including its missile programme and other means of delivery” a joint statement said.
The leaders however expressed their continued commitment to the 2015 nuclear agreement which is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA). Tensions between the United States and Iran rose high when Donald Trump withdrew from the accord in 2017 and re-imposed sanctions on Iran.
