Drone strike on Saudi Arabia oil facilities: UK statement

UK condemns Houthi drone attack on Aramco in Saudi Arabia.

A Foreign Office spokesperson recently (14 September 2019) said:

The UK condemns the reckless drone attack on Aramco oil facilities in Saudi Arabia this morning, for which the Houthis have claimed responsibility.

Threatening civilian areas and commercial infrastructure is dangerous, provocative and completely unacceptable. This escalation also undermines UN-led efforts to end the conflict in Yemen.

We call upon the Houthis to immediately cease such attacks. The UK remains committed to supporting the security of Saudi Arabia and to achieving a political solution to the devastating conflict in Yemen.
