Any change to Hormuz Strait status opens door to dangerous confrontation
Tehran (KNA) - A military aide to the Iranian Leader Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan said Wed. that "any change in the status of the Strait of Hormuz would open the door to a dangerous confrontation."
Military adviser to the Iranian Leader Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan made the remarks in an interview with Qatar-based Al Jazeera Arabic TV on Wednesday.
"Any change in the status of the Strait of Hormuz will open the door to a dangerous confrontation," Dehghan said, while warning against the unforeseen consequences of United Kingdom's offer of forming a European force in the Strait of Hormuz.
The military official, who formerly served as Iran's defense minister, added that either everyone enjoys security in the Strait of Hormuz and exports oil or none.
He further warned that Tehran would not negotiate with the US President Donald Trump's administration under any circumstances and that if Washington decided to go to war then all American bases in the region would be targeted.
The former defense minister also underlined that any war against Iran would be considered a war against Iran and all its allies in the whole region.
