Istanbul:Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged caution over blaming Islamic Repubic of Iran for the September 14 attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities.

The United States, some European Union member states and Saudi Arabia have blamed the attack on Iran, instead of Yemen’s Houthi rebels who have claimed responsibility.

Islamic Republic of Iran distanced itself from the incident but said it was ready for a “full-fledged” war.

Turkish President Erdogan told that it was not “the right thing to do” to blame Tehran.

“We need to recognize attacks of this scale come from several parts of Yemen. But if we just place the entire burden on Iran, it won’t be the right way to go. Because the evidence available does not necessarily point to that fact,” he said.
