Kremlin warns against unfounded claims over Gulf of Oman tanker attacks
The incident with the attacks on tankers in the Gulf of Oman may undermine global economy, and convincing evidence is needed in order to avoid unfounded accusations, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, TASS reports.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iranian authorities for the attacks on the oil tankers, noting that this assessment was based on intelligence and the analysis on the weapons allegedly used in the attack.
"Such incidents can indeed shatter the basis of global economy and that’s why unfounded accusations can be hardly taken into account," Peskov said in an interview with the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" on the Rossiya-1 TV channel.
"It’s absurd to refer to any secret data in this case," he stressed, noting that Russia insists on giving a sober assessment about this situation and waiting for "convincing data."
