A senior Saudi official said before that Riyadh would await the consequences of a stunt before reacting to the attacks on its oil facilities, for that it considers Iran accounts.

At the time, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the highest authority in Iran, accused Saudi Arabia of backing the attackers, which Riyadh denied. There have been no further attacks, and it appears that neither the United States nor Saudi Arabia are preparing military counter strikes.

A Saudi-led coalition has battled the Houthis in Yemen since March 2015, a conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people and sparked what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

"Our people, for the last 40 years, and over the last 10 years specifically, we have been able to tolerate the pressure of the sanctions", he said.

Half of Saudis energy production was knocked out in what has been dubbed a sophisticated and targeted attack. Minister of state for foreign affairs Adel al-Jubeir told reporters that the probe, which Riyadh has invited worldwide investigators to join, would prove that the September 14 strikes came from the north.

Yemen's Houthi group claimed responsibility for the attacks but a USA official said they originated from southwestern Iran.

The British foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, on Sunday described it as "implausible" that the Saudi oilfield attacks were perpetrated by the Houthi movement.

"The Aramco strikes were no minor incident: They were perhaps the most significant attacks on Saudi Arabian infrastructure in modern history, and the result of a series of provocations and tit-for-tat exchanges that have been allowed to gather momentum for too long", the group said.

An Iraqi intelligence official, however, told Middle East Eye last week that the drone strike was launched from bases of Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) in southern Iraq.

On Saturday, Gen. Hossein Salami, at a ceremony displaying pieces of an American drone Iran shot down in June, said that his forces have carried out "war exercises and are ready for any scenario".

Zarif also said that the U.S. made it clear he was not welcome at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City next week that he planned to attend, despite being approved for a visa waiver.

"Appeasement with Iran would now not work". For example, trying to set up a parallel financial payment system is appeasement.

Large holes were visible on the tops of rounded tanks called "spheroids", which had been surrounded with scaffolding as lines of workers went up and down, evaluating whether they could be fixed, or would have to be replaced. "So they want me to know that I am not supposed to be here", he said.

President Donald Trump's order Friday to send additional troops to the Middle East to support Iran's rival Saudi Arabia almost a week after the drone attack on Saudi oil facilities.

Tensions have flared in the Gulf since May, when Iran began reducing its commitments to the nuclear deal and the United States said it was sending forces to waters near the Islamic republic in response to "indications of a credible threat" from its forces.
