Russia has asked the United States of America and Iran to show restraint amidst spate of attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf around Iran.

The Spokesman for Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov said this on Friday in response to the rising tensions between Washington and Tehran.

Earlier on Thursday, US President Donald Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for the downing of an unmanned surveillance drone, but pulled back from launching the attacks.

During the week, Iran shot down a U.S. military drone, raising fears of a military confrontation between Tehran and Washington.
