An array of nations came out to condemn the move because United Nations Yemen envoy Martin Griffiths told the U.N. Security Council on Monday that it was "not entirely clear" who was behind Saturday's attack on Saudi oil facilities. Griffiths said the attack had increased the chances of a regional conflict.

He also said the identity of the perpetrator was yet to be clear. But that didn't stop envoys at the UN from standing up. during the Security Council meeting, China's deputy permanent representative, Wu Haitao, also said China condemns attacks on Saudi oil refinery facilities and is against any attacks on civilians and civilian installations.

The Saudi-led military coalition battling Yemen's Houthi movement said that the attack on Saudi Arabian oil plants was carried out with Iranian weapons and was not launched from Yemen according to preliminary findings.
