Saudi Arabia says Iran unable to close Strait of Hormuz
Saudi Energy Ministry adviser Ibrahim al-Muhanna said on Tuesday that Iran is unable to completely, or partially, close the Strait of Hormuz or Bab al-Mandeb.
He said if Iran closes the Strait of Hormuz, the UN Security Council is likely to authorize military action, according to statements reported by Reuters news agency.
He added that current sanctions on Iran are unlikely to stop.
On Monday, the head of the navy of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Gen. Alireza Tangsiri, said that Iran had full control of both the Arabian Gulf itself and the Strait of Hormuz that leads into it, Reuters reported.
