Amman, Chairman of the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union (AIPU), Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament, Atef Tarawneh, condemned the terrorist attacks which targeted two Aramco oil pumping stations in the provinces of Dawadmi and Afif in Riyadh.

The AIPU was deeply angered by the terrorist acts on the Saudi oil installations, he said in a union statement issued on Wednesday, stressing the need to seek the “language of reason and dialogue” before resorting to acts of violence and terrorism, in which the situation’s effects will go beyond the Gulf and the Arab regions to reflect negatively on the regional and international security and peace.

The incident is also associated with other effects that would further damage the world economy and energy supplies that are closely linked to all the peoples of the world, the statement pointed out.

Tarawneh called on all “active and influential” actors in local, regional and international forums to intervene directly to put an end to such acts of subversive sabotage that seek to strike at the vital economic interests of the Arab countries, simultaneously pointing to the “heinous” attack that targeted the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

On defusing tensions, the statement stressed the need to coordinate efforts of the international community and achieve the highest levels of diplomacy and constructive dialogue in order to reach peaceful understandings that keep war and destruction away from the Arab and Islamic region, which has become the scene of settling scores between the super powers and their ambitions in the Arab region.

Tarawneh expressed the solidarity of the AIPU and its support with Saudi Arabia in all its measures and its efforts at the regional and international levels, expressing the union’s full confidence in the capacity of Saudi Arabia to defend its entire national territory, and maintain its sovereignty, stability and prosperity to remain a strong supporter for the Arab and Islamic nations.
