STORYLINE
Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia was speaking to reporters Monday (16 Sep) following a Security Council meeting on Yemen. Asked by a reporter to comment on the US President Trump’s remarks that the US military is “locked and loaded” to retaliate against perpetrators of the attacks on Saudi oil facilities, Nebenzia said “we are very concerned that the incidents similar to this may provoke a larger conflict in the Gulf.”

“Gulf has enough problems,” said Nebenzia. “Gulf and the surrounding area of the Middle East have enough problem besides this and a major conflict in the Gulf would be definitely a disaster.”

Russian ambassador also said, “we would want to avoid it at any cost and we are calling on all our partners to demonstrate restrain.”

In a statement released earlier, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned Saturday’s attack on the Aramco oil facilities and called upon all parties to exercise maximum restraint, prevent any escalation amid heightened tensions and comply at all times with International Humanitarian Law.
