Moscow calls for an assessment of the situation in the Gulf of Oman only on the basis of convincing evidence. This statement was made by the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov in the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin".
He noted that the US accusations against the Iranian military in the attack on two oil tankers are based only on unsubstantiated accusations.
"We did not forget the test tubes with white powder. Yes, we remember that. And so we learned to be restrained in our assessments and continue to urge a sober assessment of the situation and wait for convincing data," he said.
According to him, to refer to the fact that this is some kind of secret data, in this case absurd.
“Such incidents can shake the foundations of the world economy, and therefore, unfounded accusations can hardly be taken into account here,” said Dmitry Peskov.
Meanwhile, the US military will soon discuss the possibility of transferring additional forces to the Middle East. About this, with reference to its sources, the TV channel "CNN".
According to the publication, we are talking about the Patriot anti-aircraft systems, as well as fighters and warships. It is expected that a meeting on this issue will be held on Friday.
