Saudi Arabia's oil supply is fully back online after weekend attacks halved output and the Kingdom will achieve 11 million barrels per day (bpd) capacity by the end of September and 12 million bpd by the end of November, the Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz Bin Salman said on Tuesday.
It initially caused oil prices to surge to levels not seen since the 1991 Gulf War and laid bare the vulnerability of the world's oil supply.
Imran Khan reiterated Pakistan's full support and solidarity with the brotherly country against any threat to its security and territorial integrity.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Yemenis launched the strikes in retaliation for attacks by a Saudi-led coalition that has been battling the Houthis for four years. The attack was claimed by the Houthis, who have previously attacked sensitive Saudi targets closer to the Yemeni border, but the US has increasingly pointed to Iran itself as a main suspect. But blaming Iran won't change that.
As the Pentagon expanded its own military presence in the region, including the first deployment of USA troops to Saudi Arabia in 16 years, the White House blamed Iran for a series of attacks targeting oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper labelled Iran a destabilising force in the region, but stopped short of directly accusing Tehran over the strikes.
At a weapons exhibition in July in Yemen's Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa, military officials whipped silken sheets off what they said were newly-developed drones and missiles. Iran has repeatedly denied involvement while their allies in Yemem, the Houthi rebels, claimed responsibility.
The US has blamed the attacks on Iran, and had said it could release more of its strategic reserves on the market to restore calm to prices.
Earlier in the day, Saudi Aramco had allowed its employees to re-enter the Abqaiq oil-processing facility for the first time since Saturday's attacks.
The media coverage of the military attack on Saudi oil facilities is reminiscent of the hysteria over the Arab oil embargo and petroleum price spikes of the 1970s. The crisis stems from President Donald Trump's decision to pull the USA out of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
The weekend attacks on vital oil infrastructure in OPEC's largest producer and the world's top oil exporter Saudi Arabia could be a boon to Brazil, a non-OPEC producer which is not part of the OPEC+ production cut deal and which is set to boost its oil production and access to some of its prized oil exploration areas.
"That's why all Iranian officials, from the president and the foreign minister to all others have announced that we do not negotiate (with the U.S.) either bilaterally or multilaterally", he said.
Fears Saturday's strikes would hit global supplies sent prices 20% higher. Prices fell after the United States said it would release USA emergency supplies and producers said there were enough global stocks.
Saudi Arabia, which has supported tougher US sanctions on Iran, said an initial investigation showed the strikes were carried out with Iranian weapons.
U.S. -Iran relations deteriorated after Trump quit the accord and reimposed sanctions over Tehran's nuclear and ballistic programmes. "We want to find definitively who did this", he said.
