Crude oil prices rose on Monday as investors focused on latest trade deals after the United States and China ended their last round of negotiations that ended without a deal on Friday.
Investment incentives in the oil market remained strong despite persistent trade tensions that raised fears of economic instability. The traders also followed a statement by the UAE Foreign Ministry on Sunday that four merchant ships targeted "sabotage" near Fujairah, according to a statement published by the UAE news agency (WAM).
"Submerging merchant ships for vandalism and threatening the lives of their crews is a dangerous development," the ministry said. No casualties were reported as a result of the incident, but failed to provide further information about the vessels. Earlier in the day, several explosions were reported to have rocked the port in the emirate, the world's second largest supply center, when tankers caught fire.

In a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency, pointed out that the attacks, however, did not cause oil spill or casualties.
The statement issued by the minister that the tankers were on their way to the Persian Gulf to deliver Saudi oil to Saudi Aramco customers in the United States. "The joint responsibility of the international community to protect the safety of maritime navigation, especially oil tankers, is to avoid harmful effects on energy markets and the global economy.
