translated from Spanish: Trump says there are «many options» on the table before the outbreak of war with Iran

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that there are «many options» to address the situation with Iran that do not involve a war with the country, in the wake of the latest attacks on refineries in Saudi Arabia.» We’ll see what happens. We have a lot of options we’re considering. There are many options,» he said, before adding that «there are last options and options that are much smaller than those.» Thus, he clarified that with «last options» he refers to «going to war,» while ruling out the option of a nuclear war, according to transcripts provided by the White House.Trump’s words have come after the Secretary of State United States, Mike Pompeo, will accuse Iran of committing an «act of war» after the attack on refineries of Saudi state oil company Aramco, from which Tehran has disengaged. He has accused the Huthis of lying by claiming authorship of the attack, while stressing that Yemeni rebels «are completely under the boot of the Iranians.» Pompeo has stressed that the Huthis would have made the claim «following Iran’s orders.» During Wednesday’s day, the Government of Saudi Arabia has deemed «undeniable» that Iran is responsible for the attack and exposed the remnants of weaponry that would supposedly be backed by this accusation. A spokesman for the Saudi Defence Ministry, Turki al Malki, has assured the media that 25 drones and cruise missiles were used to attack the two refineries last Saturday. These include Delta Wing-type unmanned aircraft and ‘Ya Ali’ missiles, used by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. In response, Hesamedín Ashena, an adviser to the Iranian Presidency, noted that «the press conference (by Al Malki) shows that Saudi Arabia knows nothing about where the missiles and drones were made and from where they were fired.» In a message on his social network twitter account, Ashena added that the Saudi authorities «have not explained why the country’s defense system failed to intercept them.» THE HUTHIS INSIST IN THEIR AUTHORY For their part, the Huthis rebels have insisted on their authorship and have defended their right to respond to the operations carried out in Yemen by the coalition leading Saudi Arabia.A spokesman for the Yemeni insurgency has underlined this Wednesday that Saudi Arabia has falsified testing to hide the damage done to the facility of the oil company Aramco. «Destruction (…) is much larger than the one they have recognized,» said Al Masirah, according to the akin-end Al Masirah chain.One of the facilities under attack is located in Abqaiq, near Damman in the Eastern Province, while the other is in the Hijrat Jurais oil field.Los Los insurgents – supported by Tehran in the context of the conflict in Yemen – already warned monday that the facilities of Saudi state oil station remain a target that could be attacked «at any time.»
