Britain has joined the U.S. in blaming Iran for recent attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.

Johnson said, “the UK is attributing responsibility with a very high degree of probability to Iran” for the attack by drones and cruise missiles on the Saudi oil field.

“We will be working with our American friends and our European friends to construct a response that tries to de-escalate tensions in the Gulf region.” Adding that he wanted Britain to be “a bridge between our European friends and the Americans when it comes to the crisis in the Gulf.”

Johnson also confirmed that while he was at the United Nations he would meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at this week’s U.N. gathering. Johnson is also due to hold talks with U.S. President Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Britain had previously held back from attributing blame for the drone and missile attack Saudi Arabia and the United States say Iran supplied 18 drones and seven cruise missiles which hit an oil field and processing facility, something Tehran denies.

Iran warned the U.S. that any military response will spark an “all-out war” with immediate retaliation from Tehran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence both condemned the attack on Saudi oil facilities as “an act of war.”
