Iran to ‘block’ Gulf oil if sanctions proceed
No oil will be allowed to pass through the Strait of Hormuz if the West applies sanctions on Iran’s oil exports, Iranian Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi has warned.

The threat was reported on Tuesday by the state news agency IRNA as Iran conducted its fourth day of naval drills near the Strait of Hormuz, at the entrance to the oil-rich Gulf. 

Rahimi was quoted as saying:


"If sanctions are adopted against Iranian oil, not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of Hormuz. We have no desire for hostilities or violence … but the West doesn’t want to go back on its plan [to impose sanctions]. The enemies will only drop their plots when we put them back in their place.
