Iran says Israeli involvement in Gulf naval mission would be 'disastrous'

Iran's detention of UK-flagged tanker unacceptable owner

The officials advise U.S. -flagged vessels to "decline permission" by any Iranian forces attempting to board the ship and "immediately inform the U.S. [Navy's] Fifth Fleet Battle Watch", headquartered in Bahrain. "Iran won't hesitate to safeguard its security", Zarif said.

The warning was delivered in a statement that also cited an advisory from the Transportation Department's Maritime Administration.

All vessels should be aware that USA and other coalition naval forces may conduct maritime awareness calls, queries, and approaches to ensure the safety of vessels transiting the Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, Gulf of Oman, and Arabian Sea.

Iran's Defense Minister Amir Hatami discussed the US-proposed coalition to monitor the Persian Gulf region in a phone conversation with defense officials from Kuwait, Qatar and Oman.

Hatami warned that "America is the principal cause of insecurity in the region" and, referring to archfoe Israel's recent interest in joining the US -led effort in the Persian Gulf, he said "such a move could be very provocative and have disastrous consequences for the region".

Tehran and Washington have been locked in a battle of nerves since US President Donald Trump withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Iran past year and reimposed sanctions.

Hatami said, "We are committed to the security of the Persian Gulf".

Speaking about the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), Macron said that it was important for France to ensure the interests of Iran are acceptable for all parties to the nuclear deal. "We're not looking to hurt Iran", Trump added.

Earlier this week the United Kingdom joined a US-led mission to protect civilian ships in the Gulf. Iran said Friday, July 19, 2019, that it had seized the tanker in the Persian Gulf.

Later on the same day, U.S. President Donald Trump said he had called off a retaliatory attack on a number of targets in Iran and said that he was ready to speak with Iranian leaders and come to an understanding that would allow the country to improve its economic prospects. On August 6, Israel confirmed its readiness to join the coalition, added TASS. "We consider it as part of our territory and believe that the presence of foreign forces there is unacceptable", Mousavi was quoted by the IRNA news agency as saying, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
