The United States has accused Iran of launching attacks on the global energy supply amid calls for de-escalation.

In a tweet on Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia so far and there is no evidence that latest attacks on Saudi oil facilities were launched from Yemen.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia's energy minister said that yesterday's strikes on  Abqaiq oil processing plant and Khurais oil field have reduced crude oil production by 5.7 million barrels a day, which is about half the kingdom's output.
