Oil prices rose on Monday after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington will take all actions necessary to guarantee safe navigation in the Middle East, as tensions mounted following attacks on tankers last week.

Brent futures rose 27 cents, 0.4% to $62.28 a barrel by 0040 GMT. They rose 1.1% on Friday.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 18 cents, or 0.4%, at $52.69 a barrel. They rose 0.4% in the previous session.

It was the second time in a month tankers have been attacked in the world™s most important zone for oil supplies as tensions increase between the United States and Iran. Washington blamed Iran for Thursday™s attacks, prompting a denial and criticism from Tehran.
