It’s hard to know how much of the Iran situation is simply noise. The problem is that we can go from noise to a genuine crisis in the blink of an eye due to the tight geography of the Strait of Hormuz.
How many warships can be packed in there before confusion or a false flag operation starts driving events?
The neocon crooks in the White House are salivating.
Iran will secure the Strait of Hormuz and not allow any disturbance in shipping in the key oil transport waterway, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Tuesday during a visit to Paris, the state new agency IRNA reported.
France, Italy, the Netherlands and Denmark support a European-led naval mission to ensure safe shipping through the Strait of Hormuz, three senior EU diplomats said on Tuesday, after Britain proposed the idea following Iran’s seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker.
“Iran will use its best efforts to secure the region, particularly the Strait of Hormuz, and will not allow any disturbance in shipping in this sensitive area,” Araqchi told French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, IRNA reported.
Araqchi later met French President Emmanuel Macron and delivered a message to him from President Hassan Rouhani, IRNA said.
“They (Macron and Araqchi) both emphasised using diplomacy to bring peace to the world,” IRNA added.
