Danish Prime Minister Poul Schlueter thanked the United States on Sunday after a U.S. frigate went to the aid of a Danish supertanker under Iranian attack in the Persian Gulf. The frigate Elmer Montgomery, which aided the 337,733-ton Karama Maersk on Saturday after a grenade assault by three gunboats about 13 miles south of Abu Musa island, was the first U.S. warship to fire in defense of a neutral tanker attacked by Iran in the Gulf.

A U.S. warship fired a warning shot near one of three Iranian gunboats that attacked a Danish-flag supertanker in the southern Persian Gulf on Saturday, a Pentagon spokesman said. It was the first time a U.S. warship has come to the aid of a non-U.S.-flag tanker since Secretary of Defense Frank C. Carlucci announced in April that such assistance would be provided when requested, Lt. Col. Arnold Williams said.

U.S. warships escorted a Danish-flagged tanker out of the Persian Gulf on Saturday after Iranian gunboats attacked it twice in 20 minutes, the vessel's owners said. Gulf-based shipping executives said Saturday that it marked the second time in two days that the Navy escorted merchant ships not flying the U.S. flag, in what would represent a deviation from official U.S. policy.
