Iran writes to IMO on fabricated accusations on Persian Gulf incidents 

London, IRNA – Iran’s Ambassador to Britain in a letter addressed to the Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) condemned the false news that accuse Iran of making certain moves aimed at harming the security of naval traffic in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.

In his letter to the London-based organization on Wednesday, Mohsen Baharvand urged the international community to cooperate in confronting such destabilizing stands.

He also rejected the entire body of baseless accusations and said they are all politically motivated and aimed at destabilizing and harming the peaceful naval passage.

The Iranian Ambassador further reiterated Iran’s commitment to safeguard the peace and security of navigation in the region.

Iran believes safeguarding the peaceful navigation is to the benefit of both Iran and the international community, added Baharvand.

The Iranian ambassador further stressed in his letter that adventurist moves and ill-intentions of a certain number of countries, that is mixed with a language of threats and harsh words against the Islamic Republic of Iran, is not only breaching the fundamental principle of refraining from resorting to force based on the Charter of the United Nations, but also puts at stake the security of navigation in the region in the long run.

He asked every country and player at the international scene to remain committed to the accepted international laws, including the Convention of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), on security and safety of navigation at international water passages, including in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman and to cooperate in that respect.

Some American and British media began broadcasting news with suspicious intentions and orientations on Tuesday evening on incidents in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman at a very vast scale which were also reflected in some regional and international media.

None of them had either clear sources, nor were they confirmed by any authentic source, and they were all quotations by unidentified sources. 

But the general orientation of all of those news was to convey the message that navigation of the shipping lines in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman is now unsafe.

The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in London on Wednesday announcing that the entire issues related to commercial ships in the Persian Gulf are over now, underlined that the issue is not over for Iran though, as the country will survey the recent days’ events carefully to identify and disclose the source of such rumors.
