Canada condemns latest attacks on shipping tankers in Gulf of Oman


June 14, 2019 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement:

“The Government of Canada condemns the latest attacks on shipping tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

“Canada is a trading nation dependent upon freedom of navigation and the uninterrupted passage of maritime trade. These attacks on civilian shipping are of concern to Canada and many of our international partners.

“Canada remains deeply concerned about further escalations in an already tense region. A deterioration of the situation would be counter to regional security, global trade, the rules-based international order, and the interests of Canada and the world.

“Canada is in contact with partners and closely monitoring the situation.”
