    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has agreed with his US counterpart President Donald Trump that there must be “a united diplomatic response from international partners” to the weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities.

    Johnson’s office said the two leaders spoke by phone on Wednesday.

    The U.S. alleges Iran launched the attacks, which were claimed by Yemeni rebels. Saudi Arabia has stopping short of directly accusing Iran of launching the assault but says Iranian cruise missiles and drones were used.

    Iran, however denied involvement in the attacks.

    Britain and other European countries are still abiding by the agreement.
