“In connection with the attacks on Saudi Arabia, which could affect the price of oil, I decided to allocate oil from the strategic reserve, if necessary,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Based on the attack on Saudi Arabia, which may have an impact on oil prices, I have authorized the release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, if needed, in a to-be-determined amount ....- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2019
He also said that the amount of oil will be determined later, but it "will be sufficient to maintain a good supply of markets."
On September 14, in Saudi Arabia, drones attacked two refineries of the state-owned company Saudi Aramco, after which fires occurred at the plants.
The attack has already been condemned by a number of countries, in particular Great Britain, France, Germany and the USA.
