On Friday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an independent investigation into the attacks on two oil tankers this week in the Gulf of Oman. According to Reuters, the United States blamed Iran for the attacks on Thursday, a charge Tehran rejected. Amid the rising tensions, Guterres said he was available to mediate if the parties agreed, however he added that “at the present moment we don’t see a mechanism of dialogue possible to be in place.” Tehran and Washington have both said they have no interest in starting a war, and Guterres said the world cannot afford a major confrontation in the Gulf.
