Zionist envoy calls for immediate meeting over tanker attack

TEHRAN, Aug. 04 (MNA) – The Zionist regime's permanent representative to the United Nations called for holding an immediate meeting on the incident of the attack against the regime’s tanker in the Oman Sea.

Addressing the UN Security Council in a message, Gilad Ardan, the Zionist regime's permanent representative to the United Nations called for holding an immediate meeting on the incident of the attack against the regime’s tanker in the Oman Sea.

In this letter, he accused Iran of being involved in the attack on the Zionist tanker, without providing any proof and evidence.

On Tuesday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh described as totally suspicious the reports of successive security incidents involving vessels in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, warning against any effort to create a vicious atmosphere to pursue certain political goals.

Khatibzadeh at the same time reaffirmed Iran’s policy of establishing security and stability in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, and said Iranian naval forces are prepared to provide support, if needed, to vessels that send distress signals while passing through the strategic waters of the region.

“In case of problems in navigation systems, the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to provide assistance and investigate the matter closely,” he added.

He further expressed Iran’s preparedness to cooperate with the regional countries to boost maritime security and monitoring of naval transit routes.
