On Saturday, the ambassador was asked for an explanation and correction after Britain echoed US accusations, according to ISNA. The semi-official Students News Agency reported: “During the meeting with Iran’s foreign ministry official, Iran strongly condemned the unfounded allegations and criticised Britain’s unacceptable stance regarding the attacks in the Gulf of Oman.” However, a British foreign ministry official said the report was false and the ambassador has not been summoned.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt issued a statement on Friday after the attack, blaming Iran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Mr Hunt said no other state or non-state could have been involved.

He said in a statement on June 14: "It is almost certain that a branch of the Iranian military - the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - attacked the two tankers on 13 June.

No other state or non-state actor could plausibly have been responsible.”
