Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said that recent attacks on Saudi energy assets had put the security of oil supply at risk but did not affect his country’s output.

He also called on Saudi Arabia's partners to condemn the attacks.

Four commercial ships were sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates last Sunday, and two days later drones attacked oil installations west of the Saudi capital Riyadh.
