Iran on Monday vowed to respond to any "adventurism", its foreign ministry said, after the US and Britain joined Israel in blaming Tehran for a deadly tanker attack, claims Iran denies.

Iran "will not hesitate to protect its security and national interests, and will immediately and decisively respond to any possible adventurism", spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a statement.

Khatibzadeh "strongly regretted the baseless accusations made by the British Foreign Secretary against the Islamic Republic of Iran, which were repeated by the US Secretary of State in the same context and contained contradictory, false and provocative accusations", the statement added.
