UK fears US-Iran conflict over Fujairah incident

British Chancellor Jeremy Hunt warns of the “risk” of conflict between the US and Iran over what happened in the emirate port city of Al-Fuyaira.

“We are very concerned about the risk of an accidental conflict as a result of an involuntary escalation on both sides,” Hunt said on Monday as he arrived at a meeting with his European counterparts in Brussels in reference to a possible confrontation between the US and Iran.

With these statements, Hunt referred to the strong explosions in the emirate port of Al-Fuyaira which, according to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), were acts of sabotage, although without specifying their origin.
