Pakistan condemns drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil pumping stations


By Muhammad Luqman
Pakistan has strongly condemned the drone attacks on oil pumping stations in Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
“Pakistan expresses its solidarity with Saudi Arabia and reiterates its full support against any threat to stability and security of the Kingdom,” Pakistan’s foreign office spokesman said on Wednesday.
Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and reaffirms its commitment for continued efforts and cooperation with Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the International community for its elimination, he added.
According to Aljazeera, the Aramco East-West pipeline, stretching across the kingdom to the port and oil terminal at Yenbu, was damaged in two places as pumping stations were hit.
The attacks caused minor damage but alarmed an international community already rattled by the sharp downturn in relations between Iran and the United States, the media outlet added.
Drones have been increasingly used by the Houthis in operations against the Saudi-UAE-led coalition.
