Iran’s reaction to vessel incidents in Sea of Oman

Iran’s reaction to vessel incidents in Sea of Oman

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson says the Sunday incidents for several vessels in the Sea of Oman were alarming and regrettable.

In a Monday statement, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi called for the clarification of the exact dimensions of the incident.

Referring to the negative impact of these incidents on shipping safety and maritime security, he warned against plots by ill-wishers to disrupt regional security.

Mousavi also called for the vigilance of regional states in the face of any adventurism by foreign elements.

The statement came shortly after the UAE Foreign Ministry, despite initial denial, confirmed that at least four commercial vessels had been subjected to "sabotage" near the Emirates' territorial waters.

The UAE Foreign Ministry added that there were no victims, but fell short of giving any details on possible damage to commercial vessels or which countries' flags they carried.
