Iran won’t tolerate any trouble for its tankers: Defense Minister

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Minister of Defence Brigadier General Amir Hatami stressed that the country won’t tolerate any trouble for its oil tankers and if the trouble continues and intensifies, it will be met with Iran’s unwavering and crushing response.

“The trouble for oil tankers is against international laws and security. I think the international organizations and countries that are sensitive to waterway safety should react to the issue because the act amounts to piracy,” he told reporters on the sidelines of cabinet session on Wednesday.

“Iran’s policy in this regard is totally clear and we have already announced that we won’t tolerate any trouble for our oil tankers,” General Hatami added.

“The US and other countries know that we will react to the issue without any doubt and if the trouble continues and intensifies, it will be met with Iran’s unwavering and crushing response,” he stressed.
