British PM: Iran holds responsible for oil tanker attack

(MENAFN)Local media quoted what British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that Iran “should face up to the consequences” of its acts following an attack on an oil tanker that caused a British resident to die.

The UK and Israel blamed Iran of making a deadly drone attack on an oil tanker in the Indian Ocean possessed by an Israeli magnate's firm the previous week.

According to British Prime Minister “I think that Iran should face up to the consequences of what they’ve done, accept the attribution that the foreign secretary has made.”

He continued “This was clearly an unacceptable and outrageous attack on commercial shipping. A UK national died.”

Johnson also said “It is absolutely vital that Iran and every other country respects the freedoms of navigation around the world, and the UK will continue to insist on that.”
