US President Donald Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, said on Saturday May 25th, that  intelligence on Iran regime threat is “deep and serious.”

At a press roundtable in Tokyo ahead of a four-day state visit to Japan by Trump, Bolton said recent attacks on oil tankers, pumping stations in Iraq and Saudi Arabia are “manifestation of concern” about Iran and its surrogate, Reuters reported.

Four commercial ships were sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates on May 12th, and two days’ later drones attacked oil installations west of the Saudi capital Riyadh.
