Iran May Block Oil Transit Via Strait of Hormuz if US Levies Sanctions

Strait of Hormuz
The US has withdrawn from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and is now threatening to impose new sanctions on the country in an effort to economically strangle Iran by choking off its oil exports to global markets.

Iran may close the Strait of Hormuz to oil traffic from the Persian Gulf if the United States renews sanctions against the Islamic Republic, Reuters has reported, citing an Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander.

“If they want to stop Iranian oil exports, we will not allow any oil shipment to pass through the Strait of Hormuz,” Ismail Kowsari, the deputy commander of the Sarallah military base, said.

Earlier, Tehran’s representative at OPEC Hussein Kazempur Ardebili warned that Washington’s effort to block Iranian oil exports would backfire forcing American citizens to pay the price for President Trump’s policy.
