Moreover, Johnson has said Britain would consider joining the United States-led international maritime coalition to secure the free movement and ease the heightened tensions in the Middle East amidst Saudi Aramco oil plants attack on Sep 14.
Johnson told journalists while emplaned on late Sunday to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that now Britain is “attributing responsibility with a very high degree of probability to Iran” for the oil attack by cruise missiles and military drones.
“We will be working with our American friends and our European friends to construct a response that tries to de-escalate tensions in the Gulf region,” Johnson said.
The announcement has come after Houthi claimed the responsibility of drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facilities last week. Though, Houthi reiterated its claim, Riyadh and the United States stood at their stance, blaming Iran for oil attacks.
