ABUDHABI (Reuters) – U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Wednesday that attacks on oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates this month were the work of “naval mines almost certainly from Iran”.

Bolton also told reporters in Abu Dhabi that the United States is trying to be prudent in responding to the activities of Iran and its proxies in the region.
