Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said in an interview with Al Arabiya that the Kingdom has several options to respond to the September 14 attacks on Aramco oil facilities.
The Kingdom is coordinating at the highest levels with Washington, he added. If it is proven that Iran is behind the attacks “then the international community should bear its responsibility and make Iran pay the price for that,” said al-Jubeir.
“There are many options for Saudi Arabia and there is an assessment of these options,” he said, pointing out that that there is an ongoing investigation by a team of experts from the Kingdom, the United Nations, and from some other countries.
Al-Jubeir also said that Iran has been waging a war on Saudi Arabia since the Khomeini revolution.
Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs pointed out that the “European positon strongly condemns what happened,” adding that the Kingdom expects European countries become tougher in the way they deal with Iran.
“This will lessen the economic pressures on Iran, and make it political position harden. We believe that it is important that the position is unified and that the picture is clear for the Iranians.”
“No one wants war, and this option should be the last,” he said.
