UK, Romania summon Iranian ambassadors over ship attack

Iran, which has denied involvement in the attack on the Israeli-linked oil tanker, responded by summoning the British chargé d'affaires in Tehran.

The United Kingdom and Romania summoned Iran’s ambassadors to their countries on Monday after a suspected Iranian attack on an oil tanker off the coast of Oman last week killed a British and a Romanian national. 

“Iran must immediately cease actions that risk international peace and security,'' the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office said in a statement, adding that vessels must be allowed to navigate freely.
