Pompeo: 'Important Information' for Trump After Mideast Talks on Saudi Oil Field Attacks
Friday, 20 September 2019 10:16 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday he has "important information" for President Donald Trump about how to respond to the recent attack on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities after meeting with leaders in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The top U.S. diplomat said there was "enormous consensus" that Iran was responsible for the middle-of-the-night missile and drone attacks last weekend that at least temporarily knocked out half of the Saudis' oil production, nearly 6% of the global oil supply.

But he did not hint at how the U.S. might respond.

Pompeo, after meeting with  Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, told reporters in Dubai, "We are still striving to build out a coalition in an act of diplomacy while the foreign minister of Iran is threatening all-out war and to fight to the last American, we're here to build up a coalition aimed at achieving peace."

"We'd like a peaceful resolution," he said. "I hope the Islamic Republic of Iran sees it the same way."

Pompeo's remarks came after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif told CNN that any U.S. or Saudi military strike against Iran would result in an "all-out war."
