Drone strikes on Saudi Aramco facilities "serious threat" to global security: Seoul Updated: 2019-09-16 16:13:18 KST

South Korea's trade ministry says the attacks in Saudi Arabia won't significantly impact local oil supplies, at least for now.
The remarks came after an emergency meeting with industry experts and major Korean oil firms earlier today.
The Saudi government has said it will procure supplies to meet international contracts.
But because Saudi oil accounts for nearly a third of South Korea's crude imports, Seoul is looking to diversify its oil sources and will tap into its reserve inventory if there's a supply shortage.
Meanwhile, Seoul's foreign ministry expressed concern over the drone strikes, deeming them a "serious threat" to global energy security.
Korea says it will keep a close eye on further announcements from the Saudi government, as well as from Aramco.
