Vladimir Putin has warned America that the invasion of Iran would lead to & # 39; calamity & # 39; after the American Revolutionary Guards shot an American drone on Thursday.
The Russian president, a close ally to the Tehran regime, said any use of force by Washington would lead to a wave of violence in the region – the cost of which is & # 39; difficult to calculate & # 39; would be.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia, an important American partner, gave the Iranian & # 39; aggression & # 39; the blame for creating a & # 39; very tense & # 39; situation in the Gulf and said it is delivering advice on the next steps.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir warned that attacks on tankers around the Strait of Hormuz – shipping one-fifth of the world's oil reserves – threatened global stability.
Both Saudi Arabia and America have blamed the attacks on Iran.
& # 39; If you interfere with international shipping, this has an impact on energy supply, it has an impact on the oil price that has an impact on the world economy, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; It essentially affects almost every person in the world. & # 39;
Putin issued his warning during a telephone session in which he answered screened questions from viewers.

The increased tensions come after the Revolutionary Guard of Iran shot an American drone, of which President Trump warned that it was a & # 39; very big mistake & # 39; used to be
He said: & # 39; The US says the use of force is not excluded … This would be a disaster for the region.
& # 39; It would lead to an increase in violence and an increase in the number of refugees. & # 39;
Russia, a long-established ally of Iran, has been particularly determined in its support for Tehran since the Trump government tore a nuclear agreement signed with the country under Obama.
While Iran has adhered to the agreement in the last 12 months, the US has slowly imposed sanctions that it had lifted in exchange for Iran, limiting the scope of its nuclear program.
This has led to a series of escalating movements from both countries.
In April, Iran threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz completely after Trump had ended the sanction exemption for importers of Iranian oil, closing off an important source of income for Tehran.
Iran said the drone was brought down because it violated the country's territory, although America denied it and said it was in international airspace

In May, two oil tankers were hit by explosives during their journey through the Strait, before the attack was repeated this month.
The US has released footage of what he believes to be an Iranian boat that takes a mine from the mines that did not explode from the side of one of the boats.
America has also moved a group of strike carriers to the region to deal with so-called & # 39; credible threats & # 39; from Iran.
This week, acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan stated that America is relocating 1,000 troops and allocating more defense resources to face the threat.
Although the US is preparing for a possible confrontation, European ministers have covered their bets – claiming they are in favor of enforcing the nuclear agreement and need more time to analyze US and British intelligence on Iran's actions .
& # 39; We continue to gather information … in a situation like this, we must be very meticulous and take the time we need & # 39 ;, said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas Monday.
