US, UK escalate tensions in Persian Gulf: Russia


Tehran (ISNA) - The increase in pressure on Iran from the side of the US and the UK will escalate tensions in the Persian Gulf, the Russian Embassy in London stated.

"We are confident that an increase in pressure from the US on Iran with the support of the UK, namely by forming the so-called "mission on guaranteeing freedom of navigation" will only facilitate the escalation of tensions in the Persian Gulf," the message by the embassy informed.

The embassy noted that for many years, "Russia has supported a diplomatic approach to overcoming crises in the region." "We think that this can only be achieved by creating an inclusive system of regional security. In this regard, an optimal mechanism may be the Concept of Collective Security in the Persian Gulf, developed by us back in 2004 and updated in accordance with the latest trends," the message stressed.

The Russian diplomats added that they had acquainted the British side with the concept, stressing that Russia is ready to discuss this topic with all interested partners, according to TASS.
