Saudi Arabia’s Council of Ministers, chaired by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, reaffirmed on Tuesday the Kingdom's readiness to meet global oil needs.

Saudi Arabia and Russia are also expected to sign a cooperation agreement between oil-producing nations, Al Arabiya reported.

During the meeting, the Kingdom’s Minister of Information Turki bin Abdullah al-Shabana condemned the September 14 attacks on Saudi Aramco’s oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais, according to his statement to the Saudi state news agency.

The minister said he considers the attack as a threat to the region, global security, as well as global energy supplies.
