Iran threatens to close the Strait of Hormuz after the total blockade of its oil exports announced by the United States
A Tehran minister said “steps have been taken” to deal with President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke special permits for China and seven other buyers of Persian crude. The Revolutionary Guard said it plans to cut off access to the Persian Gulf “without a shred of doubt”
The Iranian government said it was prepared for the US decision not to renew special permits for buyers of Iranian oil, the Persian oil minister said Monday, while the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) threatened to close the Strait of Iran. Hormuz in the Persian Gulf.
The Iranian agency Tasnim, tied precisely to the IRGC, assured that the United States will not be able to stop all oil exports, quoting a government minister in Tehran without naming it.
The statements come after US President Donald Trump decided Monday not to extend special permits to eight countries (China, Italy, Turkey, Greece, India, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea) to continue buying Iranian oil despite the Washington sanctions instituted in 2018 after exiting the nuclear pact with Iran.
In this way, US companies will not be able to trade with countries that continue to buy Persian crude, in an effort to isolate Tehran.
On the other hand, the commander of the IRGC navy, General Alireza Tangsiri, threatens to close the strategic Strait of Hormuz, which controls the entrance to the Persian Gulf, if sanctions persist.
The Persian Gulf is an important seaway by which countries like Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia export their oil and gas production , and in its narrowest part, between Iran and Oman precisely in Ormuz, the step consists of just 50 kilometers wide.
For this reason the body of water is constantly patrolled by numerous warships, including those belonging to the United States Navy, which in recent years have had dangerous encounters with boats from the IRGC, recently designated by the United States as a terrorist group. .
“According to international law, the Strait of Hormuz is a seaway and if we are prohibited from using it, we will close it, ” said the soldier according to Iranian aganecia Fars , linked to the government.
“In case of any threat, we will not have a shred of doubt when it comes to protecting and defending Iranian waters ,” Tangsiri added.
On the other hand, the minister quoted by Tasnim said that “although special permits remain or not, Iranian oil exports will never reach zero under any circumstances unless the Iranian authorities decide to stop exports, and this is not the case” .
“We have been monitoring and analyzing all possible scenarios and conditions to increase the country’s oil exports, and necessary measures have been taken ,” the minister added. “Iran is not waiting for the decision of the United States to export its oil,” he added.
“We have years of experience in neutralizing the efforts of our enemies to launch blows against our country,” he concluded.
