Russian spy chief expects peaceful solution to Aramco attacks

A peaceful solution to the Saudi Aramco oil facilities attack is expected, even though the incident has the potential to spark a military conflict, Russia's Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin stated on Tuesday, according to Interfax.

Naryshkin's comments come after the United States said Iran was behind the attacks, but Tehran strongly denied the accusations. Meanwhile, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented that Moscow has no information on who attacked the Saudi oil facilities.

The attacks led to a surge in oil prices on global markets and Russia and the US promised to react if supply needs to be increased.
