WASHINGTON, Sept 16 (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blamed Iran on Monday for the weekend attack on a Saudi Arabian oil facility and called for an international response.

“I hope our international partners will join us in imposing consequences on Iran for this reckless, destabilizing attack,” McConnell, a Republican, said as he opened the U.S. Senate.
