Saudi Arabia is committed to meet India's energy security needs and will work constructively with other oil producers to maintain market stability, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported, citing an interview with Saudi Ambassador Dr Saud bin Mohammed Al Sati.
Al Sati said Saudi Arabia is planning to invite the United Nations (UN) and international experts to view the situation on the ground and to participate in the investigation into the attacks.
Fire had broken out on Sept. 14 at the two Saudi Aramco facilities in Abqaiq and Hijrat Khurais after they were targeted by drones.
"As the investigations are ongoing, we will invite the UN and international experts to view the situation on the ground and to participate in the investigations," the ambassador said.
"The Kingdom will take appropriate measures to ensure its security and stability. We affirm that it has the capability and resolve to defend its land and people, and to forcefully respond to these aggressions," he added.
Al Sati also noted, as one of the world's leading energy producers, Saudi Arabia will continue working constructively with other producers within and outside OPEC to maintain market stability, thus protecting all the interests of producers and consumers alike.
