Iran has long been badgering the oil industry of the Middle East as some sort of retaliation against international sanctions on rabble-rousing regime.
Those sanctions arose from a failed nuclear deal between the US the Iran, in which the Persian nation repeatedly attempted to evade UN inspectors and defy the limits and parameters put forth by the United States.
President Donald Trump, in making good on his promise to overturn the deal, reinstated the sanctions that have now riled Iran into terrorizing the region.
Now, after an explosive airborne attack on a Saudi Arabian refinery that was attributed to Tehran’s forced by the US and the Saudi Kingdom, Europe is weighing in as well.
Britain, Germany and France backed the United States and blamed Iran on Monday for an attack on Saudi oil facilities, urging Tehran to agree to new talks with world powers on its nuclear and missile programs and regional security issues.
The Europeans issued a joint statement after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron met at the United Nations on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders.
Iran has long insisted that there will be no chance of talks between Washington and Tehran, declaring that any US military action against them will be met with “all out war”.
The United States Department of Defense has said that their mission in the region will be specifically defensive, deploying “hundreds, not thousands” of troops and advanced air defense systems only.
