Erdogan: Blaming Iran for Aramco attack is not right

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned against blaming Iran for the attack earlier this month on two Saudi Aramco plants.

In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, Erdogan expressed his conviction that accusing Iran of being behind the Aramco attack was “not right”. Scope carried out from some areas of Yemen.

“Holding Iran directly responsible is not true because the evidence does not document exactly that.”

Erdogan expressed Ankara’s opposition to US sanctions against Tehran, pointing out that Turkey and Iran are neighboring countries in the region and the sanctions “have not resolved anything.”

The Turkish president dismissed press reports that Ankara was responsible for helping Iran, Venezuela and Syria circumvent US sanctions, accusing the US-based opposition preacher Fethullah Gulen of promoting the allegations.

Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France and Britain have blamed Iran for the Aramco attack, which halted half of the kingdom’s oil supplies. Tehran strongly rejects the accusations.
