"If anybody is to make the Strait of Hormuz unsafe, we will certainly counter it, and if our oil is not to be shipped over through the Strait of Hormuz, then the oil of others will definitely not go through the strait either", the top general underlined.
The commander of the Revolutionary Guards' navy said last week that Iran would close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if Tehran is barred from using it.
The United States demanded last Monday that buyers of Iranian oil stop purchases by May 1 or face sanctions, ending six months of waivers which allowed Iran's eight biggest buyers, a lot of them in Asia, to continue importing limited volumes.
The strait lies between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman as the sole maritime passage from the former to the open ocean.
The Iranian statement was in response to the United States announcing last week that it will not extend waivers to countries over importing Iranian oil as part of its goal to exert maximum pressure on Tehran.
The Iranian commander also claimed that Iran is in total control of the Hormuz. 'The Europeans have had a year but unfortunately they have not taken any practical measures, ' Zarif told IRIB.
Describing a cut in Iran's reliance on the export of oil as an opportunity, the Leader said such an opportunity will be used for further reliance on internal capabilities.
"In some countries, such as the United States, weapons are freely sold in the interest of the mafia of gun manufacturers and this causes problems for the people", Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted by his website as saying. The suspect's motive was unknown, Iranian media said. Poaching also occurs in protected areas. "I believe we'll have the resources necessary to deter Iran from taking actions that will be unsafe. That day, we will be fully capable of closing the strait", Major General Baqeri added.
