Iran Warns It Will Respond to Action Over Tanker Attack

In response to threats and accusations over an attack on an Israeli-operated tanker that killed two crew members, Iran on Monday warned that any “adventurism” would be met with a response.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran will not hesitate, even for a moment, to defend its security and national interests, and will answer any possible adventurism with immediate, powerful, and serious action,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh told reporters, according to Iran’s PressTV.

Khatibzadeh said Iran “strongly condemns” statements from the US and UK accusing Tehran of being behind the attack on the tanker. Without providing evidence, the US and UK joined Israel in blaming Iran. “If they have any evidence to support their baseless claims they should provide them,” Khatibzadeh said. The deadly attack killed a British citizen, as well as a Romanian, and both countries have summoned Iranian diplomats to discuss the incident.
