G7 condemns Mercer Street attack: Iran 'threatening international peace'
"Iran's behavior, alongside its support to proxy forces and non-state armed actors, threatens international peace and security," the G7 statement said.

Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven wealthy economies said Iran was threatening international peace and security and that all available evidence showed it was behind an attack on the Mercer Street tanker last week. "All available evidence clearly points to Iran. There is no justification for this attack," said the statement, issued by current G7 chair, Britain. The vessel was a Liberian-flagged, Japanese-owned petroleum product tanker managed by Israeli-owned Zodiac Maritime. Tehran has denied any involvement in the suspected drone attack in which two crew members - a Briton and a Romanian - were killed. In a separate statement, the US military said explosives experts from the Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier - which deployed to assist the Mercer Street - concluded the drone was produced in Iran.
