UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has confirmed that two naval vessels have been seized by Iranian authorities in the Strait of Hormuz.

The foreign secretary said:”I’m extremely concerned by the seizure of two naval vessels by Iranian authorities in the Strait of Hormuz.

“I will shortly attend a COBRA meeting to review what we know and what we can do to swiftly secure the release of the two vessels – a British-flagged vessel and a Liberian-flagged vessel.

“Their crews comprise a range of nationalities, but we understand there are no British citizens on board either ship.

“Our Ambassador in Tehran is in contact with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to resolve the situation and we are working closely with international partners.

“These seizures are unacceptable. It is essential that freedom of navigation is maintained and that all ships can move safely and freely in the region.”

Lol, i was waiting for this! Did the u.k. honestly think it could just pirate an iranian ship and that iran would just watch as uk flagged ships sailed right past its shores all merry and good? Iran says, “steal one of ours we take two in return”! Im english and even i am glad iran did this!

UK is a historical liar and a cheat and unnecessarily provoking Iran. It is time for the UK to think rationally and look at the dire consequences of any suicidal escalation in the Persian Gulf, Iran is not Iraq and any conflict will become global and most likely nuclear as Russia will not sit by.

Ah, the Brits know what they are doing. They’re the nastiest we have in the West. Be ready for a hard ride. Now they’ve started sanctions on Iran and EU is gonna follow in support of the seizure of the tanker. Iran will surely reply by using terrorism through Hezbollah or Quds Force in the EU Iran’s Ambassador to Ireland Masoud Eslami has said that US sanctions on Iran have affected the Islamic Republic in a similar way to the Irish famine… Nope, not yet… But now the EU will join, if the 2019 GDP was on the way to… Read more »

The UK is unnecessarily provoking Iran and received the appropriate response. Iran under international navigation maritime laws is entitled to enforce regulations at it controls the narrow straits of Hormuz. A major war in the Persian Gulf is in no ones interest and will destroy the global economies, not to mention spell doom for the Zionist entity, Saudis, UAE and Bahrain. It also has a very high probability of going nuclear as Russia and China will not sit idly by if a friendly neighboring nation like Iran is attacked. It is time for saner heads to prevail and deescalate this… Read more »

Gas pipeline : Here’s the biggest energy market on Earth : And guess which country’s 36% of value in exports is… selling natural gas on this market? So here you have Russia’s goal : Annual natural gas production based on statistics from the International Energy Agency: 1.) United States : 766.2B m³, 2015 est. 2.) Russia : 635.5B m³, 2015 est. 3.)

Yeah, and Russia was also a great friend to Saddam’s Iraq and Gaddafi’s Libya… In relations between states, there is no friendship, only interests! Russia’s interest is to avoid Qatari/Iranian gas from reaching the EU through pipeline… Oh yeah, take a look at EU gas pipeline system : and the linkage to Libya… Guess why Russia didn’t saved Gaddafi’s a*s? Or why Russia backs Algerian militaries’ aggressivity against Morocco? Or why shitlamists in the Muslim-Brotherhood are so into seizing Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Nigeria and Ivory Coast while Senegal, Guinea, Sierra-Leone etc have no interest?

Britis still think that they are in the 17th & 18th century when the Sun never set on their empire they had established on countries weaker than them. Now they are like old po rn star thinking about their glorious past and licking the boots of US, extremely happy that Iran just royally screwed them. They think Iran is just a push over. Even US will have to think twice before they even think of taking on Iran.

Now, they’re thinking that, unless Brexit is finally cancelled, they’ll have to switch back to a much more aggressive foreign policy to compensate. Iran screwed itself up. Brits could have done warning shots, then used Aster-30 to shoot down the chopper and VULCANO guided shells to take out the IRGC speed boats…Old pirates have deliberately paraded 2 tankers in front of Iranian noses while these could simply had passed the strait in Oman’s territorial waters! They deliberately let IRGC idiots seizing the 2 tankers in order to escalate. They know what they are doing. Hey, we created UK in 1066AD… Read more »

British generally are immoral criminals. Iran has done the right thing after its tanker was illegally seized in occupied Gibraltar.

Seriously, when Syria captured a few Israeli POWs in 1973, they paraded them chained on a tank in Damascus before murdering them (murdering POWs is a war-crime)… Had it be real, Assad would have paraded them… And now would be…

The so-called “royal” family of England, long time ago, was nothing more than any other family, aspiring & ambitious, normal average folks, got into business of buying & selling stuff, meats, fish, cows, sheep, chicken, so they got some money into their hands, they bought land, they became land owners, they then fought against other land owners and won some battles, won more than lost, their land holdings grew, just like today’s property owners they increased their assets, ppl lived on their properties, paid them rent, so the family can now raise a small militia to protect their properties, they… Read more »
