UAE says attacks on oil tankers are a 'dangerous escalation'

CAIRO, June 14 (Reuters) - Attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and on a Saudi airport are a ‘major and dangerous escalation’ that requires the international community to scramble to protect regional stability and security, the United Arab Emirates’ Minister of State for Foreign Affairs said on Thursday.

“Wisdom and collective responsibility are needed to prevent more escalation,” Anwar Gargash said in a Twitter post. (Reporting by Ali Abdelaty, writing by Aziz El Yaakoubi Editing by James Dalgleish)
