Joint statement by US, UK, Saudi Arabia, UAE urges diplomatic solutions on Iran

 

The United States, Britain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates released a joint statement calling for diplomatic solutions to ease tensions with Iran.

The joint statement asks Iran to end all its destabilizing activities in the region.

The signatories emphasize that they are seeking diplomatic solutions”.

As Mike Pompeo visits the region, he once again called the Islamic Republic “the greatest sponsor of terrorism” in the world. He announced that the goal of his visit is to create a global coalition, not only among the countries around the Persian Gulf but in Asia and Europe.

The signatory countries expressed their concerns regarding the recent attacks by Houthis in Yemen against Saudi Arabian facilities and the attacks on oil tankers: “These attacks threaten the international waterways that we all rely on for shipping. Ships and their crews must be allowed to pass through international waters safely.”

The statement continued: “We further note with concern the recent escalation in Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia using Iranian made and facilitated missiles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. In particular, we condemn the Houthi attack on Abha civilian airport on 12 June, which injured 26 civilians.”

The United States is currently trying to create a coalition to protect the shipping routes in the Persian Gulf.
