The foreign Ministry commented on the UN report about the attack on Saudi oil facilities

Conclusive evidence of Iranian involvement in the attack on Saudi oil facilities in the report of the United Nations there, said the official representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

Earlier, Reuters, citing a report by the UN chief Antonio Guterres said that the cruise missiles used in attacks on state oil company Saudi Aramco and the airport in Saudi Arabia to 2019, was "of Iranian origin".

"The so-called irrefutable evidence related inscriptions in Farsi. This is reminiscent, of course, all the previous cases, when the conversations on some languages were made the conclusions about the involvement of the countries where these languages are used to some crimes, pseudopressure and so on. The hapless experts who for some reason decided unusual for them to perform the function of investigators, crept the thought that all these slender designs come exactly from those who seek at all costs to prove the guilt of Iran and all means good for them," said Zakharov on the briefing.

"Of particular concern is that of the so-called evidence against Iran is based on the results of the interception of American and some Australian Navy vessels in international waters. And the fact that such activity is, frankly, looks like piracy is, in itself goes beyond the recognized norms of interstate cooperation and international law in the report, of course, not say a word," - said Zakharov.

In late September of 2019, the facilities at the oilfields Abqaiq and Juris was attacked, with the result that Saudi Arabia has lost more than half of the oil production. Responsibility for attack was assumed by the rebels of the movement "Ansar Allah" (Houthis) who control the North of Yemen and the border with the Kingdom areas. However, Riyadh has said that the Houthis could not stand for this attack, because caught in the oil facilities of a cruise missile flew in different direction and blamed in attack Iran, but Tehran denied the accusations.
