Josep Borrell.

The European Union on Sunday blamed Iran for the recent attack on an Israeli-managed tanker off the coast of Oman, in which two people were killed. EU foreign minister Josep Borrell said in a statement that the EU “condemns in the strongest terms the unlawful attack committed on the merchant vessel Mercer Street, off Masirah Island in Oman, on 29 July.”

“There is no justification for this attack which killed a Romanian as well as a British citizen. We offer our condolences to their families and friends and express our full solidarity with the affected member state,” he said. “Such reckless and unilateral actions, against international law and threatening to international peace, are unacceptable and need to stop. Freedom of navigation must be guaranteed in accordance with international law. All available evidence clearly points to Iran,” stated Borrell.
