Allawi urges adopting dialogue, respecting sovereignty to end escalation

Allawi Twitter
Leader of the Wataniya National Coalition Ayad Allawi called for resorting to dialogue, respect for sovereignty, and non-interference in the internal affairs of the other states, affirming that these principles are the only guarantee for stability and prevention of further problems.

Commenting on Thursday's attacks on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, Allawi reiterated the importance of convening a conference of security and regional peace, to discuss the escalation the region witnesses.

He also stressed the need to find urgent solutions to the existing tensions in the region.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Tehran for the incident, saying that the assessment was based on intelligence.

"This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication," he stated.
