Abu DhabiThe United Arab Emirates has welcomed the decision and willingness of several friendly countries to join the international investigation into the recent sabotage operations, which targeted four tankers carrying Emirati, Saudi, and Norwegian flags off the UAE's territorial waters in the Gulf of Oman.
"The participation of our international partners in the investigation will help us arrive at impartial conclusions in a transparent manner. That is precisely what the UAE wants from this probe," the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said in a statement.
"The ongoing joint investigations reflect the international community's determination to protect maritime security, the flow of international trade, and energy supplies," the ministry said, adding that with the participation of UAE's international partners, the investigation will continue in the proper manner and will conclude in due course.
