  • Saudi Arabia sees no oil shortage, but OPEC to act if needed

However, U.S. officials have yet to publicly explain the threats they perceive coming from Iran, some two weeks after the White House ordered an aircraft carrier and B-52s bombers into the region.

The ambassador also said he believed that "President Trump does not want war, but that does not mean that people who are close to him share his opinion"-referring to hard-liners such as national security adviser John Bolton, who Ravanchi said was among those "trying to provoke to agitate to create a necessity grounds for the war or conflict with Iran".

The Republican leader pulled the USA out a 2015 nuclear deal previous year, accusing Iran of using sanction relief to fund militant groups and ballistic missile activity.

The latest tensions between the two countries came after Iran suspended its commitments under the worldwide nuclear deal and threatened to resume production of enriched uranium.

In withdrawing, Trump said the terms were not tough enough to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and did not address Iran's missile program or Tehran's alleged support for militants in the region.

The warning appeared rooted in what happened 30 years ago after Operation Praying Mantis, a daylong naval battle in the Persian Gulf between American forces and Iran during the country's long 1980s war with Iraq.

Falih said oil demand in Asia had picked up, while demand in the United States for Saudi crude had dropped. On July 3, 1988, the USS Vincennes chased Iranian speedboats that allegedly opened fire on a helicopter into Iranian territorial waters, then mistook an Iran Air heading to Dubai for an Iranian F-14.

That comment was echoed by Majid Takht-e Ravanchi, Iran's ambassador to the United Nations.

The country hosts more than 5,000 US troops, and is home to powerful Iranian-backed militias, some of whom want those USA forces to leave. "The U.S. has yet to apologize for that act of terrorism against Iranian civilians".

Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways all said they were aware of the notice and operations were unaffected.

USA officials said on Thursday that Trump had told his advisers, including acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, that he did not want to get into a war with Iran. "However, Iran's default option for 40 years has been violence, and we will protect USA personnel and interests in the region", said Garrett Marquis, spokesman for the White House National Security Council. He also visited Japan, a close USA ally which joined European nations in urging Tehran to stick by the deal, and heads to China, another important oil purchaser, on Friday.

In Tehran, Major General Hossein Salami, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards, said on Saturday that Iran had nothing to fear from the United States, which he said was in decline, the semi-official news agency ISNA reported. The Persian Gulf, part of the Gulf of Oman, Oman and the United Arab Emirates have been added to the list of "enhanced risk for marine insurers" after attacks on ships off the UAE.
