Iran dismissed as “pointless” US claims that Tehran was behind drone attacks which hit two of Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil installations on Saturday, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said on Sunday.
“Such fruitless and blind accusations and remarks are incomprehensible and pointless,” ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi was quoted as saying in a statement.
The allegations over Saturday’s strikes were meant to justify “future actions” against Iran, he added.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday blamed Iran for the attacks which were claimed by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia, saying that “Iran has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply.”
