 U.S. Planned International Coalition Cruise to Iran in the Strait of Hormuz: Dont Make Mistakes


According to reports, Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, said that the United States hopes to identify members of the International Military Alliance within two weeks and begin to discuss specific task-sharing issues. Dunford said that the plan to organize an international coalition force was finalized in recent days, when the United States will provide command vessels for command and supervision, while other countries will only provide patrol vessels to patrol the vicinity of U.S. warships and escort merchant ships sailing in the area.

Dunford revealed that the International Military Alliance will also seek to ensure the safety of the Mand Strait. The Strait of Mand connects the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea, through which nearly four million barrels of oil are transported daily to Europe.

The announcement by the United States in May last year that it would withdraw from the comprehensive agreement on Irans nuclear issue and resume sanctions against Iran has worried the international community. One year later, the Iranian government announced in early May this year that it would suspend the implementation of some provisions of the Iranian nuclear agreement, urging other signatories to meet the interests of the Iraqi side by July 7, otherwise the Iraqi side would not restrict the product abundance of uranium enrichment activities.

Iran had previously threatened to blockade the Strait of Hormuz if the US blockade order cut off Iranian crude oil exports. Other Gulf oil producers, such as Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, export crude oil through the Strait of Hormuz. About a third of the worlds maritime crude oil trade depends on the Strait.

Irans semi-official Tasnim news agency quoted Revolutionary Guard commander Najat as saying that the United States is very clear about the consequences of the military confrontation with Iran. American bases are within our missile range... If they make mistakes, our missiles will destroy their aircraft carriers. In response to the proposal of the United States to form an international coalition force, Japan, the main ally of the United States, refused to respond positively to whether it supported it or not. Japans Deputy Secretary-General of the Cabinet, Taro Noguchi, said on the 10th: We are very concerned about the intensification of tensions in the Middle East. To ensure the safety of navigation in the Strait of Hormuz is of vital importance to Chinas energy security and to ensure the peaceful and prosperous development of the international community. Taro Noguchi stressed that Japan will continue to work with relevant countries led by the United States to ease tensions in the Middle East. Source: Responsible Editor of CNN: Su Hong-hung_NBJ9980
