The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
"We are concerned that commercial ships in the Gulf region have been targeted for second time in the last one month," the ministry said in a statement.
"We attach importance to the maintenance of the safety of navigation in the Gulf region, which has a strategic location in terms of international maritime transport," Hurriyet Daily cited the statement as saying.
The two tankers, the Marshal Islands-flagged and the Panama-flagged, were on their ways to Taiwan and Singapore from Qatar and Saudi Arabia, respectively.
