As though Iran has any motive to attack a Japanese ship while the Ayatollah was sitting down to meet PM Abe.
I’d believe Javad Zarif over Mike Pompeo and his little “assessments” on this any day.
Reported attacks on Japan-related tankers occurred while PM @AbeShinzo was meeting with Ayatollah @khamenei_ir for extensive and friendly talks.
Suspicious doesn’t begin to describe what likely transpired this morning.
Iran’s proposed Regional Dialogue Forum is imperative.
