Iran summoned the British ambassador to Tehran after London accused the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of attacking oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. This was reported by the semi-official student news agency ISNA, informs Reuters.

"After the statements of the British Foreign Secretary, which are not true, made after the statements by the United States, in which our country was accused of involvement in the events with two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, a strong protest was expressed to the British ambassador," the Iranian Foreign Ministry said.

According to ISNA, the British ambassador was asked to explain and correct the situation after Britain accused Iran of attacking tankers in the Gulf of Oman, thus becoming the only country that supported the U.S. accusations.
On Friday, British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt blamed Iran and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on attacks on two ships in the Gulf of Oman on 13 June.

Iran denies involvement in attacks on foreign tankers.

These attacks led to an increase in oil prices and raised concerns about a new confrontation between the U.S. and Iran.
On June 13, explosions occurred on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman. One of them was registered in Panama, the second vessel belonged to the Norwegian Frontline and sailed  under the flag of the Marshall Islands. On one of the ships were 11 Russians, they, like other crew members, were evacuated to Iran. After the explosions, the tankers caught fire.

Later, members of the crew of the Front Altair arrived in Dubai, from where they went home.
