.@NATO: “We condemn the seizure of two commercial ships in the Strait of Hormuz. This represents a clear challenge to international freedom of navigation. We urge Iran to immediately release the ships & their crew. The UK has made clear that their priority is to address...”

U.S. Secretary of State on Iran: "We are prepared to negotiate across a broad set of issues with no preconditions," Pompeo says in Ecuador. "But today we have seen no indication that the Iranians are prepared to fundamentally change the direction of their nation."

Lol what consequenzes? Sanction the sanctions of the sanctions? The UK seems pretty headless in this issue. What if Iran seizes another ship in the coming days? The UK can sanction its butt if they can't ensure the safety of its commercial ships in the strait of Hormuz. By the way Iran captured the british tanker in Omani territorial waters which is nothing less than piracy because they have no right to seize a foreign ship in foreign territorial waters without the authorization of the respective country.

Will be interesting to see how this develops.

Not sure if this is true but many sources are saying...

So I am reading a lot of this in many places, going to assume it's just the latest round of disinformation fake news (hopefully) but it is being reported in many places so.., someone prove this wrong please.

A British oil tanker was “steered” towards Iranian waters by false GPS co-ordinates sent by Russian spy technology, it is now feared.

If this is true or the West thinks this is true, then this would change things and really for the worse...

Britain says Iran approached tanker in Omani waters: letter to U.N.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Britain told the United Nations Security Council on Saturday that a British-flagged tanker seized by Iran was approached by Iranian forces when it was in Omani territorial waters and the action "constitutes illegal interference."

In a statement signed on Sunday, 160 Iranian lawmakers cast support to IRGC’s move and appreciated the elite force for impounding the violating vessel, urging the government to approve a motion to charge a toll to ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps impounded the British tanker, Stena Impero, on Friday while it was passing through the Strait of Hormuz en route to Saudi Arabia. It was seized "for failing to respect international maritime rules.”
