PARIS (Reuters) – France condemns attacks on Saudi oil facilities that have disrupted global production, the country’s foreign ministry said on Sunday.
“France firmly condemns yesterday’s attacks on the Abqaiq and Khurais oil installations,” the ministry said in a statement that also expressed “complete solidarity” with Saudi Arabia.
“These actions can only worsen regional tensions and risk of conflict,” the French statement added. “It is imperative that they stop.”
