Saudi Crown Prince Blames Iran For Tanker Attacks, Says Ready ‘To Deal With Any Threat’

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince has directly blamed archrival Iran for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and said his country “won’t hesitate to deal with any threat” against its people or interests.

“The Iranian regime did not respect the Japanese prime minister’s visit to Tehran, and while he was there replied to his efforts by attacking two tankers, one of which was Japanese,” Muhammed bin Salman told the pan-Arab Asharq al-Awsat newspaper in an interview published on June 16.

“We do not want a war in the region…But we won’t hesitate to deal with any threat to our people, our sovereignty, our territorial integrity and our vital interests,” he said, according to the newspaper.
