The government of Japan issued a statement strongly condemning the series of cross-border attacks by the Yemen-based Houthis against several areas in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia including the attack on an oil facility in Jeddah on March 25.

Japan calls on all parties concerned for an immediate ceasefire and the early start of dialogue towards achieving a political solution to the situation in Yemen.

Japan has been providing humanitarian assistance to Yemen, and remains committed to help achieve peace and stability in Yemen.

A huge fire erupted at an Aramco oil storage facility after one attack ahead of a Formula One race in the kingdom.

Smoke billowed near the circuit and the second practice was delayed in the attack, one of 16 drone-and-missile attacks by the Iran-backed group around the kingdom. No injuries were reported in the attack.

“The Japanese Ambassador to Saudi Arabia strongly condemns the attacks on the Kingdom’s infrastructure, including Aramco’s oil facilities in Jeddah and that the Government of Japan has called on all parties to dialogue for an immediate ceasefire and a political solution in Yemen,” a statement issued by the Embassy of Japan in Saudi Arabia said in a tweet.

Saudi authorities pledged the upcoming grand prix would go on as scheduled.
