Tehran: UN report on attacks on Saudi oil facilities made at US request

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Tehran pointed out inaccuracies in a report by UN Secretary General Anthony Guterres on attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. The Iranian Permanent Mission noted that the data on the Iranian origin of the missiles used to attack the Saudi Aramco fields in 2019 are incorrect. The document has a number of “serious flaws, inaccuracies and contradictions,” the Iranian side said.

Investigation of attacks is complex and delicate, and the UN secretariat does not have sufficient capabilities and expertise to conduct it, the permanent mission said. Some of the weapons that were allegedly seized do not match the weapons that Iran makes, diplomats said.

Thus, Iran categorically rejected the remarks in the report regarding the Iranian connection with weapons and their components, which were used in attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, as well as with the Iranian origin of weapons allegedly seized by the American side. RIA News .

Tehran is confident that the United States is in the assessment of Iran’s involvement in the attacks at the helm . The UN Secretary General’s findings are consistent with Washington’s claims, diplomats point out. They also noted that the report contained too many vague wordings, which cast doubt on the validity of the findings.

The publication of the report coincided with the promulgation of a US resolution to extend the arms embargo on Tehran. The Iranian Foreign Ministry called it an “interesting coincidence” and noted that the report of the UN secretariat was made at the request of the United States and will be used against Tehran at the June meeting of the Security Council.

An attack on SAR oil facilities was launched in September 2019. The Hussite rebels claimed responsibility for the raid on two fields – Abkayk and Khurais. But Saudi Arabia does not believe that they are involved in the attack. Riyadh is sure that the missiles arrived from the other side – from Iran. Tehran rejects these allegations.
