New York: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani challenged countries who accused Iran of carrying out this month's attack on a Saudi Arabian oil facility to provide evidence.

"Those who make the allegations must provide the needed proof. What is your evidence?" he told reporters in New York, a day after addressing the UN General Assembly.

 

The United States, France, Germany and Britain have all blamed Iran for the strikes on the kingdom's Abqaiq plant and the Khurais oil field which knocked out half of Saudi Arabia's oil production.
