Iran commented on EU plans to create a fleet in the Persian Gulf

The Iranian authorities have condemned the plans of the leading EU countries to deploy the fleet in the Gulf region.

Official spokesman for the government of the Islamic Republic, Ali Rabia, called the EU initiative hostile, reports ISNA .

Earlier, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced the joint work of Paris, London and Berlin on the “European initiative” to ensure the safety of navigation in the Persian Gulf in connection with the detention of the British tanker  Stena Impero  by the Iranian Navy.

Prior to this, the US government announced the formation of a coalition that will patrol the Strait of Hormuz.

According to Rabia, the planned deployment of the European fleet is a hostile message, given that Iran is one of the key guarantors of security in the region.

On July 19, the IRGC Navy detained the British tanker Stena Impero in this strait in Iranian territorial waters . After that, the vessel was escorted to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas. Iranian authorities said the ship was carrying smuggled oil.

The detention of the  Stena Impero was  in fact Tehran’s response to the detention of the Iranian tanker Grace 1 off the coast of Gibraltar on July 4 on suspicion of violating EU sanctions against Syria. Then the Iranian authorities warned about the response.
