(Reuters) – The British government agrees with the United States that Iran was behind the suspected attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, a BBC reporter wrote on Twitter.
“We strongly agree with the US assessment,” the reporter tweeted, quoting a UK Foreign Office source.
The Foreign Office had no immediate comment.
