1 of 4: We applaud the remarkable courage of the crew of the @USNavy’s USS Bainbridge in rescuing merchant mariners from a Panamanian ship on fire following the attack in the Gulf of Oman. Our servicemembers are in harm's way protecting international norms & freedoms.
2 of 4: Iran’s continued unprovoked attacks in the region are a threat to international security and peace and an assault against freedom of navigation on the open seas.
3 of 4: While we do not seek conflict, the @DeptOfDefense will defend our forces and our interests around the world. We will safeguard global commerce and defend freedom of navigation.
4 of 4: As @SecPompeo said earlier today, the focus of the US government is on diplomacy to drive a comprehensive agreement that fosters peace and security.
