Iran Reports Oil Tanker Strike to UN: SPOX

TEHRAN (Shana) – The spokesman of the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that last week’s attack on Iran’s oil tanker in the Red Sea was backed by a government, adding Iran had reported the incident to the United Nations.

According to IRNA, Seyed Abbas Mousavi, at a news conference on Monday, referred to the report of an attack on an Iranian oil tanker in the Red Sea, saying the report of the strike had been presented to the United Nations.

On the latest developments related to the implementation of the fourth step in reducing Iran's nuclear commitments, he added: "The fourth step to reduce the commitments related to the JCPOA has been designed. Some moves were announced yesterday by the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran on Sunday. Hopefully, we hope things would not reach the fourth step and we witness some special developments by the remaining countries in the agreement; however, Iran is ready to take the fourth step anyway.”

The Iranian oil tanker, Sabiti, which is owned by the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC), is believed to have been stricken by two missiles 60 miles off the Jeddah Port, Saudi Arabia at 5 and 5:20 a.m.

The blasts damaged storerooms of the vessel.
