The Foreign Ministry in a statement said that “four commercial, civilian trading vessels of various nationalities this morning suffered acts of sabotage” off the eastern coast.
However, it didn’t directly name who was responsible for the act, but warned “carrying out acts of sabotage on commercial and civilian vessels and threatening the safety and lives of those on board is a serious development.”
The Foreign Ministry continued that nobody was harmed during the incident.
Therefore, it called on world powers to protect maritime traffic safe.
