Abe talks peace in Tehran & Iran blamed for attacks



all right let's start over in the Middle East where a dangerous situation is escalating after two oil tankers were reportedly attacked in the Gulf of Oman Iran is suspected of being behind these latest attacks but it's already denying the involvement all of this unfolding as Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a continues his visit with Iranian leaders over in Tehran RT correspondent John huddy is live with more on this developing story John what's the latest well Manila the two oil tankers were attacked as you mentioned in the Gulf of Oman and that's happened near the Strait of Hormuz now this is a strategically important location when you look on the map it's where tankers must travel through to get in and out of the Persian Gulf so this is a very important and very dangerous development and as you mentioned escalations now as we've heard crews from both ships the front salt air and the kakuka courageous were evacuated after what is being described as explosions caused by the two attacks now the ships were reportedly hit by either torpedoes or mines it's unclear which but US naval officials say the crews on both ships described hearing explosions before the ships caught fire the US Navy Navy's 5th fleet was involved in rescue operations remember a strike group from the fifth fleet is already in the Arabian Sea so the American destroyer USS Bainbridge was reportedly sent to assist the rescue operation of the two tankers and the crews Iranian state television also said that 44 sailors from the tankers have been transferred by other vessels presumably commercial vessels to an Iranian port in the country's southern province there have been no reports of any serious injuries or fatalities also both ships remained afloat though one was adrift and the other was on fire according to the latest reports that we've been getting now just to give you some background the front salt air came from the United Arab Emirates and was carrying a flammable hydrocarbon that's used in oil and gasoline production the kakuka courageous was from Saudi Arabia and was carrying methanol US military officials suspect that Iran is behind these latest attacks though Iran has not claimed any responsibility in fact iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted this today he said quote reported attacks on Japan related tankers occurred while Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a was meeting with ayatollah khomeini for extensive and friendly talks suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning iran's proposed regional dialogue forum is imperative and quote so really it appears that Zarif is trying to steer any blame or responsibility away from Iran the head of maritime security for Ben Co which is the largest international association that represents shipowners told The Associated Press that judging from the damage and the fact that both ships remained afloat it suggests he said that they were hit by mines or some kind of vessel borne explosive device basically an AED improvised explosive device attached to either a drone or a small boat a small vessel as has been done before in fact US officials allege that Iran used limpet mines last month to attack for oil tankers near the amaretti port of Ashura Iran denied being involved in those attacks but they came after Iranian backed Houthi rebels in Yemen also launched drone attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure and keep in mind that today's attacks follow also a hoot the attack on a regional airport in Saudi Arabia yesterday as we have reported extensively about all of this happening of course while Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a remains in Iran part of a diplomatic visit really to try and quell the ongoing tensions regionally and specifically between the United States and Iran though I should add that a spokesman for the prime minister said today that obeys role was not to act as a mediator between the u.s. and Iran clearly tempering any really heightened expectations about his visit that said today's event certainly puts a Bey in an uncomfortable uncomfortable position to say the least considering the comments made by both Iranian president Hassan rouhani and Ayatollah Khamenei yesterday regarding Iran's desire for peace diplomatic dialogue and not war in the Middle East region another development today I should add I know this is a lot to digest but another development that came out today adding to the overall tension was confirmation from Iran that it has accelerated its uranium enrichment program in a in a somewhat bizarre statement on Iranian state TV on nuclear plant worker really disguised with a medical mask glasses and surgical cap confirmed that Iran has purple its production of enriched uranium so that adds to the overall heightened tension and concerns not only by the US about Iran increasing or moving forward with a nuclear program but also Saudi Arabia and Israel as well now coming out of today's meetings news that Ayatollah Khomeini has reportedly assured Prime Minister Abe a that Iran has no intention of making holding or using nuclear weapons though adding that Iran will not negotiate with the United States or Donald Trump specifically and this news of course coupled with today's attack continues to have serious diplomatic and economic ramifications benchmark crude oil prices surged to as much as 4% in trading following the attacks to over 62 dollars a barrel by the way a third of all oil traded by sea passes through the Strait of Hormuz Hormuz in 2016 actually that equated to more than 18 million barrels a day moving through what is described as the world's most sensitive oil transportation show up points so finally having said all that Manila at this point we have not heard anything on these developments on the attacks from President Trump presumably we will hear something from him at some point today but right now he's just firing off tweets about really the latest on Capitol Hill his anger with Democratic lawmakers and the quote-unquote fake news media but that said we will continue to monitor all the developments coming out of the Middle East region and of course the meetings between Shinzo Abe a and Iranian leaders Manila back to you very comprehensive report John huddy thank you hey YouTube thanks for checking out our channel we hope you enjoyed the video we

  3. SOMEONE PLACED EXPLOSIVES ON THE INSIDE HULL PLATE OF THE SHIPS TO LOOK LIKE AN ATTACK BY IRANIAN ATTACK BOATS # BUT DID IT SO THAT THAT THE TANKER DID NOT SINK
    *********************************
    NOT TO SET THE STRAIT ON FIRE # CLASSIC CONTROLLED EXPLOSION # FALSE FLAG.
    *********************************
    THE TANKER BLAST BLEW THE STEEL OUT FROM THE INSIDE SO IT MUST HAVE BEEN EXPLOSIVES PLACED INSIDE THE HULL # WITH THE PICTURE SHOWING THE STERN FRACTURE LINE POINTING OUTWARDS #
    QUESTION THERE WERE US SUBS AND DRONES AND SATELLITE IMAGES CONSTANTLY VIEWING THE WHOLE STRAIT #
    WITH NOT NO VIDEO OF AN ATTACK BOAT BY SEA # WHY # THERE WAS NO ATTACK #
    ******************************
    SUSPECTS AMERICA & JAPAN
    TO START IRAN WAR.
    DONT LET TRUMP SEND 120,000
    AMERICAN TROOPS TO DIE FOR
    ANOTHER FAKE VIETNAM WAR

  4. Lol Saudi Arabia want USA to attack Iran no matter what. Faking attacks for no reason. Why Saudi Arabia don’t attack Iran because they are weak. They need a bully to help them to do their dirty work. Not in my country you deal with your own problems. Sep. 11 we all remember all the victims. Why we help the country that really attack us. Why we when to Irak when the saudis attack us. Why this country suck the saudis dicks when they are the true enemy. Can someone explained that shit to me.

  5. Gulf of Tonkin all over this…When will the American people take a break from tv and sports to Say No More Wars and invasions …Cnn,Fox news also report this will not be an easy 10,000 troops type war it will be a draft .

  6. Im no expert, but I think if I was a rogue terrorist state I could probably do a better job of blowing up some ships..

  7. All I see are a bunch of animal white americans blaming Israel for what they've been doing the past 200 years.

  8. The idiot in Miami sounds like a Trump ass kisser. Why you have idiots like this spreading propaganda makes me question RT.

  9. Who profit? And after the first false flag attack, which leaded in Europe only to care about the new afford to drag the world into a new (new middle east and new American century BS 💩) war, and if we take a second and think about that Netanyahu has his own BOLTON in the US Government to lead Trump into the right (payed) direction . And we all know =😂😂😂😂😂 Yeah WMD 😂😂😂
    Maybe the real terrorists = Quo Bono = Israel or Mossad
    The first false flag wasn't enough, especially because the Europeans does not react, so now they started the next step, so European Ships (in Japan Relations) where attacked!
    STOP NETANYAHU IMMEDIATELY
    (and his puppets, Bolton and Co.)
    NO ONE BELIEVES THIS 💩 ANYMORE. ON THE MOST MSMEDIA CHANNELS THE COMMENTS ARE DISABLED, WHY? WHAT DO YOU THINK!
    NO ONE BELIEVES THIS FALSE FLAG BS ANYMORE
    NO ONE BELIEVES ANYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD ANYMORE! IT'S SAD THAT PSYCHOPATS ARE PLAYING WITH THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD!
    And as long Israel is not hold accountable for their actions, we will see that happen again and again!

  10. And yeah, I spelled Stupid incorrectly on purpose. That's what trump and the rest of them think of you as.

  11. That's the dumbest thing ever, these guys ain't have a Japanese visitor in decades, and now when they finally get to shake hands with one and offer some camel soup, all of a sudden… let's blow up one of their tankers… (WHILE THE HISTORIC JAPANESE VISITOR IS SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO YOU).

    Mr. Pompom chubby swine must really think people are that stupit. To believe that Iran was behind that atrack, before an investigation was even conducted. Just as with 9/11, like an hour after the buildings came down, they "knew" Bin Laden was behind it.

    This is why no one like America anymore.

  12. ALL OF THE TANKERS in the past week have one thing in common. The takers came from or docked at UAE & Saudi Arabia. Not a coincident… Easy false flag to perpetrate by AUE and Sauds.
