Pope says following with concern increase of tensions in Persian gulf

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Pope Francis on Sunday (June 16) said he is following with concern the increase in tensions in the Persian Gulf.

Pope Francis, speaking during his visit to the quake hit town of Camerino, one of the central Italian towns hit by earthquakes in 2016 on Sunday, invites the international community to use diplomatic tools to solve the complex problems of conflict in the Middle East, to foster dialogue and peace.

Attacks on two oil tankers on Thursday (June 13), which the United States also blamed on Iran, have raised fears of broader confrontation in the region.

Iran has denied any role in the strikes south of the Strait of Hormuz, a vital shipping route and major transit route for oil.
