UN REPRESENTATIVES’ STATEMENTS ON ARAMCO




Selin ATAY-TDO-United Nations (UN) Representatives made statements on two drone attacks on Aramco major oil installationsin the Eastern Province in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia claimed by the Houthis.

Martin Griffiths, the U. N. Special Representative for Yemen, warned that the drone attacks would have consequences beyond the region, adding that “Such action could lead Yemen into a difficult regional disaster to control.” As the day wore on, Griffiths said Yemen was moving further away from peace, adding that the threat to regional stability would increase as the war continued.

Kelly Craft, the US Permanent Representative to the UN, condemned the attack on the Aramco oil facilities, saying it was “extremely disturbing” and mentioned that the US takes Saudi Arabia's side in the process.Craft argued that” The evidences demonstrate that Iran was behind this direct attack on the world's energy supply."

Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, Vasiliy Nebenzya, “Let's not jump to conclusions immediately, there are contradictory explanations about the drone attacks. While Ansarullah claimed responsibility, the US “says Iran in charge." Therefore, we don't have a clear picture.”said in a response to U.S. claims that Iran was behind the attacks.

“We are deeply concerned that this kind of incident will lead to larger conflicts.There are enough issues in and around the Gulf, and a major conflict would certainly end in disaster” Nebenzya said in a statement on Donald Trump's statement“US is locked and loaded”.
