Turkey calls for caution over blaming Iran for Saudi oil facility attack


ANKARA: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for caution over blaming Iran for this month’s attack on a Saudi Arabian oil facility in an interview with Fox News.

While Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the strikes on September 14, Riyadh, Washington and several European governments say Iran was responsible.

Tehran has denied any role in the strikes.

Erdogan also criticised US sanctions on Iran, saying such measures “have never solved anything”.

“These allegations are more than wrong, these are all produced propaganda by the FETO terrorist organisation.”

Turkey refers to the movement of US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen as ‘FETO’ but the organisation denies involvement in the coup attempt and insists it is a peaceful group promoting education and Islam.
