Iran's Foreign Ministry calls Yemen's attacks on Saudi Arabia defensive.

The Islamic Republic of Iran considers Yemeni attacks on Saudi Arabia as defensive measures against Saudi aggression, Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said.

Mousavi added: "Tehran supports the Yemeni constitutional government against invaders." Iran has always provided its spiritual and political support to the Yemenis.

He also said about the charges against Saudi Arabia's crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, that the accusations have no basis and they have no shame whatsoever.

A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry stressed that resolving the Yemen issue depends on accepting a ceasefire and stopping attacks on civilians.

It is noteworthy that on September 14, 2019, Saudi Aramco's oil facilities in eastern Saudi Arabia were attacked by several drones. The Houthis claimed responsibility for the attack. But the Saudi-led Yemeni Arab coalition blames Iran for attacking Saudi oil facilities. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also accused Iran of traveling to Saudi Arabia. The Iranian defense minister and other officials have strongly denied this. According to the International Energy Agency, the incident in Saudi Arabia has already led to the most serious disruption in oil supplies in history, even the damage to the Aramco attack, more than the damages caused by the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1978-1979 and sanctions. The oil will be after the Arab-Israeli war in 1973-1974.
