Great Britain, France and Germany have declared that Iran “bears responsibility” for the attack on an oil plant in Saudi Arabia this month “.
DPA reports that the world powers have announced their position in a joint statement Monday.
“It is clear to us that Iran bears responsibility for this attack. There is no other plausible explanation.
”We support ongoing investigations to establish further details,” the European nations said.
The three European nations underlined their “ongoing commitment” to the 2015 international multinational nuclear agreement with Iran.
The United States withdrew from that agreement and imposed severe sanctions on Iran.
The statement comes when world leaders meet for the UN General Assembly in New York. The president of the United States, Donald Trump, will address the assembly on Tuesday, while Iranian president Hassan Rouhani is scheduled for the end of the week.
Meanwhile, Iran has expressed its readiness for a “total war” if the United States or the Saudi army attack its country.
Foreign Minister Javad Zarif made the statement when the United States, which announced the largest sanction in history, began deploying troops in the kingdom.
Not knowing that Iran was hoping to avoid the conflict and was willing to talk to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Zarif declared that his country would not discuss with the United States if it did not get full relief from the sanctions provided from the 2015 agreement.
