Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in remarks published Sunday that the kingdom is not seeking war in the region, but warned it will not hesitate to confront threats to its security. The U.S. alleges Iran used limpet mines to target the tankers, pointing to black-and-white footage it captured that American officials describe as Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops removing an unexploded mine from the Japanese-operated tanker, Kokuka Courageous.

Defense chief says attack was not just âUS situationâ, as UK joins Washington in accusing Iran and Saudi Arabia calls for ârapidâ response An oil tanker is seen after it was attacked at the Gulf of Oman this week. Photograph: HANDOUT/Reuters The US is hoping to âbuild international consensusâ around what officials claim is Iranâs responsibility for damaging two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, as UK officials joined the US in formally accusing Iran of carrying out the attacks. The efforts come after the US released grainy surveillance footage of an alleged Iran Revolutionary Guard patrol boat, with men who appear to remove a magnetic limpet mine on the hull of one of the ships. The acting defense secretary, Patrick Shanahan, said the US was looking to âbuild international consensus to this international problemâ on Friday. The attack was not only a âUS situationâ, Shanahan said. He listed several other countries that operated vessels in the waters. âWhen you look at the situation, a Norwegian ship, Japanese ship, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, UAE,â Shanahan said, referring to attacks a few weeks prior. Oil prices have risen 3.4% following the attack, which came in the Strait of Hormuz, a critical shipping channel for international oil supplies. Insurance for ship operators in the area jumped 10%. Saudi Arabia, one of the worldâs largest oil producers, also uses the Strait. On Saturday, the Saudi energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, said âthere must be a rapid and decisive response to the threatâ to secure Gulf energy supplies and consumer confidence, according to a tweet from the ministry. The message was echoed by the Japanese industry minister, Hiroshige Seko, who said ministers agreed on the need to âwork together to deal with the recent incidents from [an] energy security point of viewâ. The U.S. military released a video on Thursday, saying it showed Iranâs Revolutionary Guards were behind the explosions that damaged the Norwegian-owned Front Altair and the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous. The UK officially joined the US in accusing Iran of perpetrating the attack on Friday night, in a statement from the Foreign Office saying: âIt is almost certain that a branch of the Iranian military â the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps â attacked the two tankers on 13 June. No other state or non-state actor could plausibly have been responsible.â The statement continued: âThere is recent precedent for attacks by Iran against oil tankers. The Emirati-led investigation of the 12 May attack on four oil tankers near the port of Fujairah [in the UAE] concluded that it was conducted by a sophisticated state actor. We are confident that Iran bears responsibility for that attack.â Although Donald Trump claimed the attacks had âIran written all overâ them, other heads of state have been more cautious in assigning blame. The United Nations secretary general, AntÃ³nio Guterres, called for an independent investigation. âItâs very important to know the truth and itâs very important that responsibilities are clarified. Obviously that can only be done if there is an independent entity that verifies those facts,â Guterres told reporters on Friday. The German foreign minister was also cautious, saying the video released by US Central Command was ânot enoughâ to make an assessment, according to ABC News. Several world powers have meanwhile called for diplomatic efforts to lower tensions, including China and Russia, which have closer ties to Iran. The European Union called for âmaximum restraintâ. Iran, meanwhile, has denied responsibility for the attack. Iranâs ambassador to the UK, Hamid Baeidinejad, said the claims were like âfalse fabrications during world war I, the Vietnam war and Iraq war that were designed to instigate military interventions and armed conflicts in different parts of world.â The attack came as the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, visited Iran in an attempt to mediate new talks on a nuclear agreement. One of the ships attacked was a Japanese vessel called the Kokuka Courageous. Iran is holding the mostly Russian crew of one of the ships, the Norwegian-owned Front Altair.
