Patrushev points to lack of information about Oman oil tanker attack
Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said that there is not enough information about the recent oil tanker attack in the Gulf of Oman.
"I think there is not enough information to draw conclusions," Patrushev stressed. "But we are interested in gathering information," he added.
"The information that our partners have provided can’t help figure out who carried out the attacks and in whose interest," TASS cited the Russian Security Council Secretary as saying.
On June 13, two oil tankers caught fire following an alleged attack in the Gulf of Oman. The crew members of Japan’s Kokuka Courageous tanker were rescued by the USS Bainbridge destroyer, while Iranian border guards took the crew of the Norway’s Front Altair tanker, which included Russian nationals, to the port of Jask. The US, supported by the UK and Saudi Arab, blamed the incident on Iran, who denied all accusations.
