The US Energy Department is ready to access its Strategic Petroleum Reserve if needed, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said on Sunday September 15th, one day after drone attacks that targeted oil facilities belonging to Saudi Aramco oil company.

As the US Secretary of State has blamed Iran for the attacks on Saturday September 14th, Conway told “Fox News Sunday” that such attacks “did not help” a possible meeting between US President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, but also did not rule out that possibility.
