Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said on Wednesday an attack by Yemen's Houthi militia on a Saudi oil tanker would have no impact on oil supplies.

"The terrorist attack ... will not affect economic activity or stall oil supplies," Falih said on his official Twitter account.

The Iran-aligned Houthis attacked a Saudi oil tanker off the main port city of Hudaydah on Tuesday.
