Riyadh and Abu Dhabi call for secure energy supplies

saudi Arabia and the united arab Emirates called Saturday to the securing of energy supplies from the Gulf, two days after attacks near the strait of Hormuz against two oil tankers, one of which is en-route to a port in uae.

tensions have risen a notch on Thursday, in the Gulf region after the attacks on two tankers in the Arabian sea, quickly granted by the United States to Iran, which has denied. The Emirates, one of the maritime facades overlooking the sea of Oman, called on the international community to "cooperate to secure the international navigation," and the energy supplies from the Gulf.

saudi Arabia, ally of the Uae and great rival regional Iran, for its part, asked for an answer "decisive" threats to the energy supply. "There must be a prompt and decisive response to threats to energy supplies (...) created by the recent terrorist acts" in the region, he said at a summit of Energy ministers of the G20 in Japan, according to his Twitter account.

Call quiet

The attacks occurred near the strait of Hormuz, through which transits one-third of the oil transported by sea in the world, bouncing in the course of the black gold. The minister emirati foreign Affairs, sheikh Abdallah ben Zayed Al-Nahyane, cited by the agency official emirati WAM, has also called for a "de-escalation", on a background of a war of words between Washington and Tehran. "The region is complex and has a lot of resources, be it gas or oil, which are needed for the (rest of the) world. We want the flow of these resources remain safe in order to ensure the stability of the world economy," he said at a summit in Bulgaria.

"from The point of view of the security of the world's energy, it is necessary for the international community to jointly manage" the situation, on Saturday said the japanese minister of Trade Hiroshige Seko, at the meeting of the G20.

Iran has repeatedly threatened to close the strategic strait of Hormuz in the event of a confrontation with the United States. The Iranians "are not going to close (the strait). It's not going to be closed for a long time and they know it. It has been said in the strongest terms", assured Friday, Donald Trump.
