Guterres, who condemned the attacks on the tankers, was speaking on Friday alongside Arab League Secretary-General Gheit after the pair met.
The attack has left one of the two tankers - the MT Front Altair - engulfed in flames and adrift, while 44 crew members were evacuated from both vessels and taken to an Iranian port. The captain of Hyundai Dubai eventually complied with the order.
A fire broke out and the 23 crew members were evacuated.
"They're not going to be closing it", Mr Trump contended, when asked about Iran's actions regarding the strait. For Partrick, the idea that Iran would want to "directly undermine" Abe's visit "and give a gift to Iran's U.S. and Gulf enemies, by engineering such a substantive attack must be in doubt".
After the United States withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, adopted a policy of maximum economic pressure and sent a carrier group to the region, the source said this "Iranian retaliation is created to show they can disrupt, and push oil prices up".
The claims by Trump and the Pentagon that the CENTCOM video is some kind of smoking gun proving the culpability of the Iranian government in the apparent attack on the Kokuka Courageous and the second tanker, the Norwegian-owned Front Altair, is nothing of the kind.
This, of course, doesn't mean that Iran wasn't responsible, and Trump has since come out and asserted that Iran was responsible.
Iran has denied any involvement.
The two alleged attacks against USA assets by Iran and an Iranian proxy group are the first against the US military to be confirmed since the US began building up forces in the region last month.The White House accelerated the dispatch of an aircraft carrier to the Gulf region in May, charging that Iran was planning an offensive against USA forces and interests in the region. The United States also blames Iran for two drone strikes on Saudi oil-pumping stations. He tried to present the latest incident in the "context of four years of unprovoked aggression against freedom-loving nations", offering a laundry list of events in Yemen, Iraq and even Afghanistan that supposedly implicated Iran, but again without any proof Tehran was behind any of them.

Stephen Colbert Mocks Donald Trump’s Huge Spelling Mistake In Prince Charles Tweet
Wales is one of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom, along with England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. That would be Charles, prince of Wales, whom he met last week at World War II commemorations in Britain.
"You know they did it because you saw the boat".
Gheit told reporters that he did not believe an Arab country was "trying to obstruct naval lanes or to shoot itself in the foot by acting the way we have seen in the Gulf of Oman or in the Hormuz Strait".
Oil prices rose about 1 per cent on Friday, reflecting market jitters.
Two oil tankers in flames from torpedo attacks in the Gulf of Oman refute that view.
U.S. Naval Forces Central Command received the calls from the M/V Front Altair and M/V Kokuka Courageous, who were operating in global waters of the Gulf of Oman. Add to that picture Washington's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal, and it's no wonder Tehran has concluded that cooperation invites more aggression.
This time, Japanese and Norwegian-owned oil tankers were the targets. The United States also declared the regime's military branch a terrorist organization.
Iran's crude exports fell to about 400,000 barrels per day in May, starving Iran's economy of its main source of revenue.
The cause of the blasts on June 13 remains unclear. The US says that object is likely an unexploded mine.
Frontline said a rescue tug equipped with towing capability reached the Front Altair at noon on June 14 and two further support vessels will arrive on scene on June 15 with a specialist team to inspect the tanker and make recommendations.
