Iran threatens to block oil shipments through Strait of Hormuz

Iran is ready to block oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf if the United States bans Iranian oil sales, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander Ismail Kowsari said.

"If they want to stop Iranian oil exports, we will not allow any oil shipment to pass through the Strait of Hormuz," the Young Journalists Club (YJC) website cited Kowsari as saying.

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.
