India on Monday condemned drone attacks on two big oil sites in Saudi Arabia, reiterating its resolve to oppose terrorism in all forms and manifestations.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels launched drone attacks on the world’s largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field on Saturday, sparking huge fires at a vulnerable chokepoint for global energy supplies.

“We condemn the attacks of September 14, 2019 targeting Abqaiq oil processing facility and Khurais oil field in Saudi Arabia,” Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

“We reiterate our resolve to oppose terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” he said.
