UK wants decisive anti-Iran action from UN after Gulf incidents

British foreign minister Dominic Raab said the United Nations Security Council must respond following a deadly tanker attack last week off the coast of Oman, accusing Iran of destabilising behaviour.

“The Council must respond to Iran’s destabilising actions & lack of respect for international law,” Raab said on Twitter, referencing a letter sent to the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday signed by Britain and other nations.

Tehran has denied any involvement in Thursday’s attack on the Mercer Street – a Liberian-flagged, Japanese-owned petroleum product tanker managed by Israeli-owned Zodiac Maritime. Two crew members, a Briton and a Romanian, were killed.
