Kuwait reiterates condemnation of attacks on oil tankers in Gulf of Oman

NEW YORK, Kuwait reiterated condemnation of ‘criminal” attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

Kuwait’s Permanent Representative to UN Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi, in remarks to KUNA late Saturday, said, “Kuwait had; in numerous occasions, strongly condemned those attacks.” All UNSC members unanimously called the incident a criminal act and violation to international law, Al-Otaibi told reporters following the Council’s consultations session on latest agendas regarding the attack in the Gulf of Oman last Friday.

“We would want to see thorough, impartial, and objective investigation to take place, and know who stands behind these actions,” he pointed out.

Last Thursday, explosions ripped through two oil tankers, Norwegian and Singaporean, in the Gulf of Oman.
