Baghdad Washington pledged an appropriate response to Tehran after the attack on an oil tanker in the Arabian Sea.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken confirmed that “the United States is confident that Iran carried out the attack on the Israeli ship off the coast of the Sultanate of Oman,” pledging an “appropriate response.”
Blinken explained that reviewing the available information makes us confident that Iran was behind the attack on a merchant ship in the Arabian Sea.
He pointed out that the attack, which resulted in the killing of civilians, was carried out by drones that Iran is increasingly using in its attacks
Blinken stressed that the attack on the ship indicates Iran’s aggressive behavior and threatens international navigation and trade, as he put it.
He explained: We are working with our partners in the region and the world to discuss the appropriate response to this incident, very soon, he said.
