Kingdom of Saudi Arabia | Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman: We Don’t Want War But We Won’t Hesitate To Deal With Threats
Saudi Arabia’s crown prince blamed Iran for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and called on the international community to take a “decisive stand” but said in an interview published on Sunday that the kingdom does not want a war in the region.
Attacks on tow oil tankers on Thursday, which the United States also blamed on Iran, have raised fears of broader confrontation in the region. Iran has denied any role in the strikes south of the Strait of Hormuz, a vital shipping route and major route for oil.
“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”, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was quoted as saying in an interview with the Saudi-owned Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.
