Multiple Options Available to Rupture Oil Embargo

There are a variety of options to respond to US pressure tactics aimed at cutting off the country’s oil revenue, says a senior diplomat.  
“If Iran cannot export its crude oil, it will obviously not sit idle and watch others export their oil. If we cannot continue our exports, others will not be able to do so either. Iran has many options to pick and choose,” Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi told Iran’s Arabic-language TV channel Al-Alam, ISNA reported. 
He did not elaborate on the possible steps Tehran would take if necessary to dampen the illegal US economic sanctions but said blocking the Strait of Hormuz, a vital shipping lane for international oil supplies, is not the only option.
