Macron: Saudi attacks do not help chances of Trump-Rouhani meeting

The attack on Saudi oil facilities have not helped diplomatic efforts to organise talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, French President Emmanuel Macron said.

Speaking to the Le Monde newspaper while flying to the U.N. General Assembly in New York, the French leader said caution was needed in apportioning blame for the attack, which shook global oil markets.

"One must be very careful in attributing responsibility. There are clusters of clues, but this bombardment is a new military event that changes the region's ecosystem," Reuters cited Macron as saying.
