United Kingdom believes Iran was behind Saudi oil attacks: PM Johnson

United Kingdom believes Iran was behind Saudi oil attacks: PM Johnson

"In this regard, we are even ready to forgive their past mistakes, because today we are faced with conditions in which the enemies of the region, particularly the USA, the arrogance and the Zionism, are seeking to exploit the gap, rift, and division among the regional countries", the president said.

Rouhani also promised to unveil a regional peace plan at the upcoming United Nations meetings.

He says he's not planning to hold talks with Iran's leader who will also be in NY for the summit.

Britain had previously held back from attributing blame for the drone and missile attack.

French President Emmanuel Macron is due to meet British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose countries are also parties to the nuclear deal, on Monday, as well as Mr Trump and Mr Rouhani.

The Trump administration announced Friday that it would send additional USA troops and missile defence equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as part of a "defensive" deployment.

The Pentagon announced on Friday that, in response to a Saudi request, there would be a moderate deployment to Saudi Arabia, not in the thousands and focused on air and missile defence.

In his speech on Sunday, Rouhani called on the foreign powers in the Gulf region to "stay away".

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that the presence of foreign forces creates "insecurity" in the Gulf after the USA ordered the deployment of more troops to the region.

This year has seen continuing tension between the U.S. and Iran, following President Donald Trump's abandonment of a deal aimed at limiting Iran's nuclear activities in return for the easing of sanctions.

Mr Johnson is also set to meet US President Donald Trump.

In a televised speech on Sunday marking the anniversary of the start of the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, Rouhani said Iran extends its "hand of friendship and brotherhood" towards countries in the region willing to cooperate in the Tehran-led effort to oversee security in the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, a vital gateway for the global oil industry.

For its part, Iran denies being responsible and has warned any retaliatory attack targeting it will result in an "all-out war".

Washington has blamed Iran, which has denied any involvement, while Riyadh rejected claims that the attack was perpetrated by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

"The fund community faded the attack last week on the assumption that supply would return very quickly, but the reality is likely to be different", said Energy Aspects analyst Virendra Chauhan in Singapore.

That plan depended on the United States easing some sanctions.
