Speaking to reporters on the way to Australia Saturday, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said he was in favor of deploying US missiles to Asia within months, though didn't specify an exact timeline, the type of weapons, or where exactly they would be positioned, the New York Times reported.

Iranian commandos seized a British-flagged tanker near the Strait of Hormuz amid increasing tensions with the U.S. and its allies.

USA intermediate-range missiles will not be deployed in Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Monday, after the United States revealed ambitions to site missiles in the Asia-Pacific region. "And we strongly condemn the attacks on shipping in the Gulf of Oman", said Reynolds.

'This is a deterrent against the bad behaviour of Iran, ' the secretary of state said.

"We are deeply concerned by the heightened tensions in the region".

"And we'll certainly discuss this issue during our ministerial consultations, but again, no decision has yet been made". "I think I the rule a line under that", Morrison told reporters in Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland.

'We hope Australia will partner with us on some of the most pressing foreign policy challenges of our time, like efforts to stabilise Syria and keep Afghanistan free of terror, and confront the Islamic Republic of Iran's unprovoked attacks on global shipping in the Strait of Hormuz, ' Mr Pompeo told reporters.

She said her country will decide based on what is in its own best sovereign interests.

Washington floated the idea of a naval coalition in June, after multiple attacks on ships in the Gulf, which the United States had blamed on Iran - but which Tehran denies.

"The request the United States has made is a very serious one, and a complex one". Instead, some European nations have expressed concerns that the operation could provoke conflict, and they are more interested in a diplomatic solution.

Declaring the German government "reluctant" to get involved in the U.S. plan she said that "participation in a US-led mission could complicate this issue, even as of course we share the goal of freedom of navigation".
