Saudi Energy Minister Says Attacks Put Security of Oil Supply At Risk

According to Reuters, Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih on Sunday said that recent attacks on Saudi energy assets had put security of oil supply at risk but not affected his country’s output. He also called on Saudi Arabia’s partners to condemn the attacks. The statement comes after four commercial ships were sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates last Sunday, and two days later drones attacked oil installations west of the Saudi capital Riyadh.
