Saturday morning’s Asahi ran an interview with Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook that was held in New York on Thursday. The paper wrote that concerning the recent attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, the senior USG official reportedly said Iran is responsible for the attacks. Hook added that silence will invite further attacks by Iran and that the tensions will be eased if many nations condemn Iran by name and hold it accountable.

 

Concerning the idea of forming a U.S.-led coalition of the willing to secure safe passage through the Strait of Hormuz, Hook reportedly said that the idea is already begun taking shape, as five nations including the UK, Australia, and Saudi Arabia have said they will participate.
