Saudi Arabia says it seeks to avert war, ball in Iran's court

Saudi Arabia has said that it wants to avert war in the region but stands ready to respond with 'all strength', telling Iran that the ball was now in its court.

Speaking at a press conference, minister of state for foreign affairs, Adel al-Jubeir today said that the kingdom wants peace and stability.


He, however, added that in the event the other side chooses war, the Saudi Arabia will respond with all force and determination and will defend itself and its interests.

This comes following last week’s attacks on Saudi oil assets. Riyadh has accused Tehran of ordering Tuesday’s drone strikes on two oil pumping stations in the kingdom, claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group.

Two days earlier, four vessels, including two Saudi oil tankers, were sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates. Iran has denied involvement in either operation. Gulf officials say an investigation into the tanker incident is underway.
