Protecting Persian Gulf Security Iran’s Prime Policy

The Iranian Embassy in Islamabad warned of plots by the Israeli regime to incite regional tensions, saying Tehran’s “principal policy” is to protect the security of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.
In a statement posted on its website on Tuesday, the diplomatic mission said that the recent successive security incidents for ships in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman were highly suspicious.
It also urged media to exercise “vigilance” in the face of “the fake and biased hype created for specific political objectives.”
“Needless to say that the Zionist regime, due to its long-running hostility toward the Islamic Republic, is seeking a conspiracy to accuse [others] and create tensions in the region as the new administration is taking office after a peaceful process of power transition in Iran. Unfortunately, certain Western governments have also supported this negative and biased trend,” the embassy said.
An Israeli-managed tanker was hit near the Omani island of Masirah late on July 29. Two crew members were killed in the incident.
Israel and its western allies alleged that Iran had been behind the attack without presenting any. Tehran denied any involvement in the incident.
