France, one of the permanent members of the United Nations, is going to send its experts to the facilities which were hit in Saudi Arabia.

On Saturday, two of Saudi Aramco’s oil facilities were damaged in a drone strike. The claim of the attacks was taken by the Houthi rebels based in Yemen. The strikes have led to a loss of half of the production output from Saudi Arabia, it also impacted five percent of the global oil supplies.

France was one of the international powers to have condemned the strikes. The Elysee Palace, said in a statement, “In response to a Saudi request, President Macron confirmed to the crown prince that France will send experts to Saudi Arabia to take part in investigations aimed at revealing the origin and modalities of the attacks.”

Saudi Arabia had earlier asked the international community to send their experts in order to investigate the origins of the strike and the payload which was used. Saudi Arabia and The United States had squarely put the blame of the attacks on Iran.

Iran has denied any involvement in the attacks on the facilities. The attack was the latest in a string of attacks on the oil industry in the Middle-East.
