Saudi Arabia's cabinet on Tuesday called on the international community to put an end to Iranian acts of aggression and subversive policies.
During the session, the cabinet stressed that initial indications show Iran's responsibility for the attack on Aramco facilities.
The kingdom has rejected Yemeni-aligned Houthi militias claiming responsibility for the attack, which Tehran denies involvement, and the Saudi Press Agency quoted King Salman bin Abdulaziz as describing the attack at the cabinet meeting as a "dangerous escalation."
The Kingdom's decision to join the International Alliance aimed at accheiving safety and protection of maritime navigation and to ensure the safety of sea lanes.
The cabinet said that this decision comes to support regional and international efforts to deter and counter threats to maritime navigation and global trade and to ensure the security and continued flow of energy supplies to the global economy.
"The sabotage attack on the oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais, made by Iranian weapons. It is a threat to international peace and security, and unjustified aggression on energy supplies to world markets. It is strongly condemned by the international community" the cabinet stated.
