Tehran will block the oil supplies in the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz if the United States will restore taken prior to the nuclear deal, sanctions and introduced a ban on the sale of Iranian oil. This was stated by Deputy commander of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps in Tehran Ismail Kowsari in an interview US, reports Reuters.
“If they want to stop Iranian oil exports, we will not allow any batch of oil passed through the Strait of Hormuz,” said Kowsari. He noted that 20% of the world’s oil transported from the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz and the world needs this oil. Any hostile action by the States will be costly, he warned.
Informed that the purpose of us sanctions is to put pressure on the Iranian regime and “reduction to zero of its revenues from sales of crude oil,” said the Director of the division of policy planning of the U.S. Department of state Brian hook.
