UAE says no proof Iran hit tankers in contradiction to US-Saudi claims

UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said Wednesday, according to Press TV, that his country was not able to pin the attacks on any country because an investigation had failed to find enough proof.

Honestly we can’t point the blame at any country because we don’t have evidence,” bin Zayed said during a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, in Moscow.

If there is a country that has the evidence, then I’m convinced that the international community will listen to it. But we need to make sure the evidence is clear and precise and scientific and convincing for the international community,” he added.

Last month, four tankers were subjected to what Abu Dhabi called "acts of sabotage" outside the tiny Persian Gulf sheikhdom's territorial waters near the Strait of Hormuz.

A joint investigation by the three countries concluded that a “state actor” was most likely behind the incident in May but stopped short of singling out any country.

Another pair of tankers -- one of them Japanese -- were attacked in the Sea of Oman earlier this month.

Things to Know Before Trip
One of the most important things to remember is that Iranians aren’t Arabs, they’re Persian. They speak Farsi (and other dialects), not Arabic, and some people might feel offended if you great them with Arabic words.
