NATO chief 'extremely concerned' after attacks on Saudi

NATO chief 'extremely concerned' after attacks on SaudiNATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said Monday he was “extremely concerned” about escalating tensions following strikes on Saudi oil facilities at the weekend, accusing Iran of destabilising the region. Speaking to AFP in Baghdad, Stoltenberg’s comments were his first on the strikes on two major Saudi oil facilities, which were claimed by Yemen’s Huthi rebels but which both Washington and Riyadh have blamed on Tehran. Stoltenberg, who said the alliance “strongly condemned” the attacks because of the destabilising effect on oil supplies, also had a message for Iraq’s neighbour, Iran.
