US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, visiting
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, called the attack on the kingdom’s oil
infrastructure an « act of war », again attributing it to Iran, shortly
after the presentation of a Saudi investigation that Tehran had
« unquestionably sponsored » the attack.
President Donald Trump was more moderate,
referring only to the new sanctions against Iran.
According to Politico, this is due to the reluctance of Washington’s allies to strike against Tehran. Tehran, for its part, according to press agency Irna, denounced the American sanctions as illegal and inhuman.
