US propaganda in blaming Iran for Oman tanker attack futile

According to Kuwait's permanent representative to the UN, the international body has not reached any evidence regarding the Oman oil tanker attack.

Iran Press/America: Member countries of the UN Security Council have called for an investigation into attacks on two oil tankers in the Sea of  Oman, Kuwait's permanent representative to the UN Mansour Al-Otaibi said on Thursday.

According to an Iran Press report, citing TASS, Mansour Al-Otaibi said: "We were glad to find that all UNSC members condemned the attacks."

Al-Otaibi added: "This attack is a violation of international law, this is a crime. We want a thorough investigation so that we know who is behind this incident. Everybody wants an unbiased and objective investigation. However, there have been no proposals, no decisions by the UN Security Council yet on who should conduct this investigation."

The Kuwaiti diplomat said: "We have not reached any evidence. The UNSC has held preliminary consultations."

Oil Tanker Attacks in Oman Sea, meaningful and suspicious: Zarif

US is running a propaganda campaign to blame Iran for the attacks on the two tankers.  US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday accused Iran of carrying out the attacks without providing any evidence to back up his accusation.

"It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Oman today," Pompeo has allegedly told reporters in a brief appearance at the State Department in Washington DC.

When even CNN is acknowledging that the attack "doesn't appear to benefit any of the protagonists in the region," and Bloomberg admits "Iran has little to gain" from blowing up the ship of its esteemed guest, Pompeo must realize another route of influence is required, Iran Press reported citing RT.

The Trump administration had also  allegedly accused Iran of being behind a similar attack on May 12 on four oil tankers in the Persian Gulf while independent analysts blamed US and Israeli intelligence agencies for carrying out a false flag operation in order to ignite a conflict in the Middle East region.

Last week, the United Nations Security Council held a meeting on the vessel attacks near the UAE port of Fujairah, but member states refused to blame any party despite Abu Dhabi's claim that a 'state actor' was behind the incident. Russian deputy ambassador Vladimir Safronkov told reporters that no evidence on Iran's alleged link to the attacks were presented during the briefing.

Days before the Security Council briefing, hawkish US National Security Adviser John Bolton had vowed to present to the UN evidence on Iran's alleged involvement in the Fujairah attacks, but he didn't.
