Statement by the Federal Foreign Office on attack of Oil Facilities in Saudi Arabia

15.09.2019 - Press release

A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (15 September) on the attack of Oil Facilities in Saudi Arabia:

Germany strongly condemns the attack of 14 September on two oil facilities in Khurais and Abqaiq, for which the Houthis have claimed responsibility. There is no justification for such an attack on Saudi Arabia’s civilian and critical infrastructure. It heightens tensions and is the very opposite of the de-escalation which we so urgently need in the region. We urge those responsible to desist from such attacks.
