The German foreign minister stressed that his country hasn’t made up its mind yet about who was behind the alleged attacks on oil shipping in the Gulf of Oman.

"We have to be very careful,” the AP cited him as saying.

Speaking ahead of a meeting of top European Union diplomats in Luxembourg at which a common stance will be debated, the German minister said that Germany is still in the process of collecting information and the evidence provided so far "comes from one side in particular."

Maas said that "with a decision of this kind the utmost care is required and we’ll take our time for this."

The United States has released what it claims is evidence that Iran was behind two alleged attacks on oil tankers last week near the Strait of Hormuz.
