Iranian Commentator: Seizure of British Tanker Proves We're Serious About Enforcing Oil Export




Published on Jul 29, 2019

Iranian political commentator Mehdi Mohammadi said in a July 24, 2019 interview on Channel 2 TV (Iran) that Europe needs the JCPOA to remain intact for security reasons because it has no alternative, and he said that Europe would be the first to be negatively impacted if the JCPOA is harmed. Mohammadi also said that by seizing Stena Imperio, the British oil tanker, Iran has shown that it is willing to implement its threats to ensure that nobody will be able to export oil or enjoy security if Iran cannot do so itself. He said that other countries will take Iran's position into consideration as a result.
