Announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the recent attacks against vessels and pumping stations in the United Arab Emirates and in Saudi Arabia

Wednesday, 15 May 2019

Greece condemns the attacks on oil vessels near the Strait of Hormuz off the UAE coast, as well as on oil pumping stations in Saudi Arabia, that took place on the 12th and 14th of May respectively.

As a major maritime power, Greece reiterates the importance of ensuring freedom of navigation and maritime safety and security, emphasizing the need to keep shipping lanes in the region open and fully functional.

We reaffirm our solidarity with the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and we will continue to support efforts towards achieving a political solution to the crisis in Yemen.
