Iran says won't close Strait of Hormuz
- Iran: Tuesday, October 30 - 2012 at 02:57
Iran's defence minister Brig. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi has said the country has no plans to close the vital shipping lanes of the Strait of Hormuz, Reuters has reported. "These two issues (closure of the Strait of Hormuz and sanctions) are not related and are totally independent of each other," the minister said. Iranian officials have repeatedly threatened to close the strait, through which around 40% of the world's sea-borne oil exports pass, in response to tightening sanctions on the country's crude exports over the past year.
