Saudi Arabian state news agency, SPA, quoted the Kingdom’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Wednesday, as saying that the attack on Saudi’s oil infrastructure posed a “real test of the global will” to confront subversive acts that threaten international stability.
He said this during a telephonic conversation with the South Korean President Moon Jae-in. President Moon has urged the global community to “take a firm stand and resolute action” towards such assaults.
Meanwhile, French President Macron said earlier today that France will send experts to investigate attack on Saudi oil facilities.
