Condemnation of attacks on Saudi Aramco oil plants continue

Tue, 2019-09-17 06:51 RIYADH: Condemnations of Saturday’s attack on Saudi Aramco oil installations continued on Monday, as the US pointed out Iran as the likely culprit behind the drone strikes that have dramatically escalated tensions in the region and triggered a record leap in global oil prices. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman both received calls from the King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa of Bahrain to condemn the attacks at Saudi oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais. US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper called the crown prince, who is also the defense minister, to affirm his country's full support for the Kingdom. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said, “We will work with international partners to forge the widest and most effective response,” with a statement from his ministry saying the “UK remains committed to supporting the security of Saudi Arabia.” India also slammed the attacks and reiterated the country’s “rejection of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” a foreign ministry spokesman said. Official Spokesperson of the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarric said in a statement that the Secretary General condemns Saturday's attacks on two Aramco oil plants. The German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said, “Such an attack on civilian and vital infrastructure in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not justified”. — with SPA Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaSaudi Aramco Attacks Tokyo summit discusses ‘strategic response’ to Saudi Aramco oil attacksTrump says looks like Iran was behind Saudi Arabia oil attacks

Tokyo summit discusses ‘strategic response’ to Saudi Aramco oil attacks

Tue, 2019-09-17 00:14 TOKYO: The attacks on Saudi Arabia grabbed all the headline attention at the G1 Global Conference in Tokyo, but the day-long think-in in Tokyo was more than just a survey of the dramatic headlines and images that had dominated the weekend media. The event is now in its ninth year, as a global leaders’ conference conducted entirely in English on the big themes of international affairs, business, culture and society from a Japanese perspective. One of the organizers called it the “Davos of Tokyo,” and while it may have fallen short of the famous Swiss Alpine gathering in numbers and glamour, the Sept. 16 event certainly rivaled it in the breadth and ambition of the agenda. Shinzo Abe, the prime minister of Japan, set a high bar in an opening video address in which he said it was “Japan’s mission” to lead the world in resetting the transparent, rules-based international order that has been weakened by the populist waves in the US, Europe and elsewhere. On the theme of “sustainable innovation in times of disruption”, the G1 followed a familiar pattern of plenaries, breakouts, workshops and networking, in the functional setting of the Globis University in downtown Tokyo. What it lacked in Alpine splendour, it more than made up for with the convenience of a one-day colloquium. But first, the weekend’s news stole the show at the opening plenary, and was an elephant in the room for the rest of the day. Taro Kono, the Japanese defense minister, declared the attacks on Saudi oil installations and the threat to global oil supplies the “most worrying scenario” in the world today. He was backed up by John Chipman, director general of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, who criticized the failure of the US and its allies in the Middle East and elsewhere to counter Iranian expansion in the region. “The strategic response to this has not been properly considered, and now Saudi Arabia’s most important strategic asset has been attacked,” he said. The attacks on Saudi oil installations also featured prominently in a later session, conducted behind-closed-doors under the Chatham House Rule, at which security experts debated the origins and impact of the attacks, including the appropriate level of response from Saudi Arabia and its allies. Chipman also spoke frankly about the confrontation between the US and China over trade, technology and digital strategy. “The US and the West has only just woken up to China’s strategic rivalry,” he said. Referring to the Soviet space launch in the 1950s that stirred the US into a space race with the USSR, Chipman said: “China wants a unipolar Asia in a multipolar world, and that is a ‘Sputnik’ moment for the Americans,” he said. There was skepticism that US President Donald Trump was the man to lead an effective rule-based order against Chinese expansion. Mieko Nakabayashi, professor of social sciences at Waseda University, who spent many years in the corridors of power in Washington, said: “A lot of people say that Trump is a disaster, but he also has a lot of supporters. He might win next year’s election, which would make for a very adventurous four years to come.” Given the East Asian venue and focus of the event, the threat from China, and its relations with neighbors such as Japan, Korea and the Southeast Asian countries, were recurring themes of the day. A session entitled “Geo-politics: US-China hegemony in Asia” had two experts from opposite sides of the issue. Abraham Denmark, American director of the Asia program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, said the US was in the middle of the biggest debate about foreign policy since the end of the Cold War. Although recent polls suggested that a large number of Americans still support an active role for the US in trade and global affairs, it was also apparent that the old rules of engagement with the rest of the world were no longer sufficient. “We used to believe that engaging with China was a good thing in itself. Now we have to balance competition and co-operation, and will co-operate only on matters of mutual self-interest,” Denmark said. Zha Daojiong, of the School of International Studies at Peking University, said there had been some “positive momentum” in recent weeks with both sides pulling back from higher trade tariffs, adding: “What is the antagonism between China and the USA? It is about primacy, and somebody has to be number one. They are like two 800-pound gorillas rising and falling under their own weight.” Lynn Kuok, of the IISS, gave a Southeast Asian perspective on the issue. “Trump’s insistence that other countries have to ban Huawei means that the USA is saying ‘you have to chose between USA and China,’ but it should not be a choice between two countries but between rules and non-rules based orders.” The session turned into a barbed exchange between the US and Chinese representatives. “If you give technology to Huawei, you’ve got to assume it will end up with the People’s Liberation Army,” said Denmark, who also complained about Chinese state subsidies to corporations. Zha Daojiong responded with allegations about subsidies to US defense manufacturers such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin. “Where is the state, and where is the company with them,” he said. Taking a swipe at US financial policy, he said: “Negative interest rates are not very capitalist.” The G1 was not just about high matters of geopolitics, however. One big theme was the progress towards achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals in environmental, social responsibility and corporate governance. Also high on the agenda was gender equality. In a session entitled “Womenomics and Gender Equality in Entrepreneurship,” Kathy Matsui, chief Japan strategist at Goldman Sachs, produced recent research showing a direct link between economic growth and greater female participation in the global workforce. “I believe that if you close the gender gap, you could actually boost global GDP by as much as $5 trillion,” she said. The Tokyo gathering also focused on events that will put Japan in the global spotlight and boost tourism. The Rugby World Cup begins next week, and the country is hosting the Olympic Games in 2020. In a session headed “How to evolve into a unique and sustainable tourism super-power,” experts discussed Japan’s ambitious plans to increase the number of international visitors and get them to spend more while on holiday. The government wants 40 million visitors next year. About 75 per cent of foreign visitors to Japan come from four Asian countries — China, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong — and the government would like to attract more Americans, Europeans and Australians, who tend to stay longer and spend more. This year a 30 per cent drop in the number of Korean tourists is expected as Japan and South Korea square off amid a trade dispute sparked by events dating back to the  Second World War.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi Aramco AttacksJapan Houthi attack on Saudi Aramco facilities act of terror: Japanese defense ministerArab coalition: Iran provided weapons used to attack Saudi Aramco sites

Saudi Arabia to pay $500m for Yemen aid next week, says UN aid chief

Author: Tue, 2019-09-17 03:15 UNITED NATIONS/RIYADH: UN aid chief Mark Lowcock said Saudi Arabia will pay $500 million to the world body next week to help fund its humanitarian response in Yemen. Lowcock said Saudi Arabia planned to pay on Sept. 25 and that the UAE had also recently made a payment of $200 million. 1,980 mines cleared in Yemen MASAM, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center’s (KSRelief) project for clearing mines in Yemen, cleared 1,980 mines during the second week of September. Experts extracted two antipersonnel mines, 332 anti-tank, 1,629 unexploded ordnance and 17 explosive devices.  Since the beginning of the project, 89,761 landmines planted by the Iranian-backed Houthis have been cleared. The project aims to help cut the number of deaths and injuries caused to Yemenis by hidden explosive devices. The mines were randomly planted to target civilians, causing permanent injuries and chronic disabilities to children and the elderly among other victims. The project aims to ensure current and future security for the Yemeni people and is one of several projects and initiatives provided by the Kingdom as part of its efforts to bring stability and development to the war-torn Middle Eastern country. The KSRelief is carrying out several humanitarian projects in Yemen, which includes provision of food, health care, vocational training and education.

Saudi Fire Safety Conference sets example for other countries

Author: Tue, 2019-09-17 03:33 RIYADH: Secretary-General of the International Energy Forum (IEF) Dr. Sun Xiansheng on Monday said that Saudi Arabia is setting good example for other countries to ensure that the fire safety measures are in place. Speaking to Arab News about the importance of this conference days after the drone attacks on oil installations, Xiansheng, said, “Saudi Arabia is a major oil- producing country and certainly gives enough attention to training people, setting a good example for other countries on how to handle such severe incidents.” The drone attack that took place in the early hours on Saturday, has caused fires in the two major Saudi Aramco facilities. Albadr Jannah, fire protection department manager at the Saudi Aramco said, “It’s good to have people coming together in one place to discuss fire safety, talking about the latest technology and everything related to fire safety measures.” Organized under the patronage of Prince Abdul Aziz bin Saud bin Naif, minister of the interior and chairman of the Higher Authority for Industrial Security, the conference was opened by Lt. Gen. Saeed bin Abdullah Al-Qahtani, assistant minister of the interior for Operations Affairs, in the presence of Xiansheng and Brig. Gen. Mohammed bin Ali Al-Habddan, secretary general of the Higher Commission for Industrial Security. Speaking at the opening session Al-Habddan said that the conference and the exhibition will review the role of public utilities in the prevention of fire disasters and their ability to respond, in line with the framework of Saudi Vision 2030. He stressed the keenness of the Higher Commission for Industrial Security to improve preventive measures through the development of technical, engineering and regulatory instructions to protect oil and industrial facilities and provide safety and fire prevention. Commenting on the conference Xiansheng said that it is very important to have this international fire safety conference and invite people and organizations from around the world. On the sidelines of the conference, training courses and workshops in various related fields have been organized to help foster awareness among citizens and residents, especially those working in the industrial sector, of how to fight a fire and how to ensure fire safety. About 350 people are expected to participate in six specialized training programs to meet the training requirements of oil and gas companies, petrochemical industries and power treatment plants and to learn the latest technological advancements. Alongside the conference, an exhibition has been organized featuring the latest technology, systems, software, consultancy services and training programs in the field of oil fire safety.

Interfaith group KAICIID on a mission to replace hate rhetoric with tolerance

Tue, 2019-09-17 03:37 JEDDAH: Different religious and human traditions can lead to a cohesive international community, and tolerance can replace hate rhetoric through responsible dialogue centers such as the King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz International Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID), its secretary-general has said.   Faisal bin Muammar said that global dialogue, through activating the role of religious and human values in dealing with international issues, has become one of the most important axes in the global forums, for its impact on relations between individuals, leaders and religious institutions of different religions and religious affiliations with policymakers everywhere, in particular international bodies and organizations.   Support Commenting on international support for KAICIID, Bin Muammar said: “I can confidently say that we have succeeded, with the support of Saudi Arabia and the participation of Spain, Austria and the Vatican, in achieving a global achievement through the KAICIID’s initiative for dialogue between followers of religions and cultures. “The initiative aims at promoting humanitarian partnerships and consolidating coexistence under the umbrella of shared citizenship. We have, in fact, witnessed various patterns where we can utilize efforts of different initiatives specialized in humanitarian and religious values to assist policymakers,” Bin Muammar said. He said that the center was able to create partnerships with countries, global institutions and religious leaderships to convince the international community that religious values should be considered part of the solution, not the origin of the problem, especially, he added, as 84 percent of the world’s population had a religious identity or tradition. Bin Muammar said that people associated with religion are potential advocates for tolerance and respect. “For that reason, KAICIID invests in promoting interreligious dialogue to unite different religions in securing social cohesion. That outcome is an essential contribution toward human security and inclusive development.”  KAICIID requested policymakers and the international community to adopt this approach, which would contribute to building security, peace and coexistence. The secretary-general said that religious and human values have become a major part of the foundation’s local and global mission. “With its strong and effective presence in global forums, the KAICIID has moved to the forefront of dialogue and cultural institutions. This could have not happened if it was not Allah’s help, the support of the founding members and the board consisting of Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Hindus,” he said. He said that one factor that had helped KAICIID become a globally leading interreligious and intercultural dialogue center was that its 50-member advisory forum represents about 15 religions and beliefs. “Moreover, the center’s representatives come from 30 countries. In addition, the center has various platforms such as the refugee platform, the Muslim Jewish Council of Europe, the dialogue platform in Central Africa, the Muslim-Christian dialogue platform in Nigeria, the Myanmar platform for dialogue between the Muslims and the Buddhists, the dialogue platform for dialogue and cooperation between Muslims and Christians and the fellows programs in five continents,” he said.   Social cohesion The KAICIID International Fellows Program brings together leaders and educators from Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and other religious backgrounds from around the world for training in dialogue facilitation, intercultural communication and promoting social cohesion by KAICIID experts. The program equips fellows with the skills to educate their students and communities about interreligious dialogue so they can become facilitators and leaders in the dialogue and active peace advocates in their communities. Bin Muammar said that KAICIID’s achievements included joining the UN’s advisory council, which consists of 50 institutions worldwide. “In the UN recent elections, the secretary-general of KAICIID was elected to co-chair the Faith Advisory Council of the United Nations Interagency Taskforce on Religion and Development together with Ms. Tarja Kantola, Chair of Finn Church Aid’s board of directors,” he said. He said that the multi-religious coalition — Religions for Peace — (RfP) had elected the KAICIID secretary-general as an honorary president at its 10th World Assembly in Lindau, Germany. “The choice is a recognition of KAICIID’s mandate and my team’s efforts to bring peace through dialogue,” he said. “We cannot achieve peaceful and cohesive societies without organizations like RfP, a very important partner for KAICIID since its establishment in 2012.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: KAICIIDINTERFASITH DIALOGUE

Arab coalition: Iran provided weapons used to attack Saudi Aramco sites

Mon, 2019-09-16 17:56 RIYADH: Iran provided the weapons used to strike two Saudi Aramco facilities in the Kingdom, the Arab coalition fighting in Yemen said Tuesday. “The investigation is continuing and all indications are that weapons used in both attacks came from Iran,” coalition spokesman Turki Al-Maliki told reporters in Riyadh, adding they were now probing “from where they were fired.” The coalition supports the Yemen government in the war against the Iran-backed Houthi militants, which claimed they had carried out the attack on Saturday. ********* READ MORE:  OPINION: From Tokyo to Toronto: Why attacking Saudi Aramco affects the whole world The shadowy forces attacking civilian targets in Saudi Arabia Pressure grows in US for firm response to Iran after Aramco attacks  ********* US officials have said Iran was behind the attack on an oil processing plant and an oil field, and that the raid did not come from Yemen, but from the other direction. “This strike didn't come from Yemen territory as the Houthi militia are pretending,” Maliki said, adding that an investigation was ongoing into the attacks and their origins. The Kingdom's Foreign Ministry said international experts, including from the UN, will be invited to participate in the investigation. Preliminary investigations showed that Iranian weapons were used in the attack, which knocked out more than half of Saudi Arabia's oil production and damaged the world's biggest crude processing plant, the ministry statement said. «The kingdom is capable of defending its land and people and responding forcefully to those attacks,» it added. The ministry said the attack above all targeted global oil supplies and called it an extension of previous hostile acts against oil pumping stations in May. The Houthis have carried out scores of attacks against Saudi Arabia using drones and ballistic missiles. Al-Maliki labelled the Houthis “a tool in the hands of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the terrorist regime of Iran.” The attacks against Abqaiq, the world's largest oil processing facility, and the Khurais oil field in eastern Saudi Arabia knocked out nearly half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production. Crude prices rocketed on Monday by more than 10 percent. Iran has denied involvement, something US President Donald Trump questioned Sunday in a tweet saying “we'll see?” Late on Monday, Trump said it was «looking likely» that Iran was responsible for the attacks. A satellite image of Saudi Aramco infrastructure at Khurais. (US Government/DigitalGlobe/ via Reuters) Trump had raised the possibility of military retaliation after the strikes on Sunday, saying Washington was “locked and loaded” to respond. The US has offered a firm response in support of its ally, and is considering increasing its intelligence sharing with Saudi Arabia as a result of the attack, Reuters reported. A US official told AP that all options, including a military response, were on the table, but added that no decisions had been made. The US government also on Monday produced satellite photos showing what officials said were at least 19 points of impact at the oil processing plant at Abqaiq and the Khurais oil field. Officials said the photos show impacts consistent with the attack coming from the direction of Iran or Iraq, rather than from Yemen to the south. Also on Monday, US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that he had spoken over the weekend with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and an Iraqi defense official about the recent attack on the oil facilities. Iraq said the attacks were not launched from its territory and on Sunday Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had told him that Washington possesses information that backs up the Iraqi government’s denial. Condemnation of the attacks continued from both within Saudi Arabia and from around the world. Saudi Arabia’s Shura Council called Tuesday for concerted efforts to hold those behind the attacks accountable. Meanwhile, the UN’s special envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths said the attacks on Abqaiq and Khurais had consequences well beyond the region and risked dragging Yemen into a “regional conflagration.” NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said during a visit to Iraq that he was «extremely concerned» about escalating tensionsand accused Iran of «destabilizing» the region. *With AFP, AP, Reuters Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi AramcoSaudi Aramco AttacksIranArab Coalition Trump calls Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after drones attack Saudi Aramco plantsIraq denies links to drone attack on Saudi oil facilities

Houthi attack on Saudi Aramco facilities act of terror: Japanese defense minister

Mon, 2019-09-16 04:14 TOKYO: Taro Kono, the defense minister of Japan, said that threats to his country’s oil supply was the “most worrying scenario” he could imagine in international relations, in the wake of attacks on Saudi Arabian oil production facilities.  “The most pessimistic scenario right now is that something happens in the Straits of Hormuz and the oil supply gets cut down, and that would send a shock wave through the global economy. I think the price of oil is already rising after this attack on Saudi facilities, so that’s the most worrying scenario right now,” he told a conference in Tokyo, Japan. However, speaking on the sidelines to Arab News, he insisted that Saudi Arabia would remain a reliable partner of Japan - which imports around 40 per cent of its crude from the Kingdom - and downplayed concerns about long-term supply problems. “Saudi has been and will be an important source of our energy supply. We have international co-ordination, and we have reserves, so we are not really worried about that,” he said.  Kono, who was until recently Japan’s foreign minister, said that his country would be seeking to promote diplomatic solutions to the latest Middle East conflagration. "We definitely need to ease the tension between those countries. As Foreign Minister, the last thing I was doing was calling the Iranian Foreign Minister and the French Foreign Minister to ease the tension the region through diplomatic actions, and I think it's important to continue doing it. “This Houthi attack on Saudi is a little different, because it's a terrorist attack. I think we may require some kind of military operation against those drone attacks, and that's something out of Japan's constitutional boundary. I think Japan will be focusing on diplomatic efforts in easing tension in the region.” He raised concerns about the apparent lack of sophistication in the recent attacks. “If it is really drones, that is a lot cheaper than any form of conventional missile,” he said.
