A senior Iranian official has brushed aside the remarks made by a NATO official that Iran is incapable of blocking the Persian Gulf.

“We hope that neither the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf nor any other waterway would be blocked, but if the enemy attacks Iran and consequently it (the blockade) becomes necessary, the Islamic Republic of Iran can easily close the Strait of Hormuz,” Brig. Gen. Massoud Jazayeri, a senior official at the Armed Forces Headquarters told Fars News Agency on Wednesday.

The commander of NATO’s naval forces had earlier said that Iran’s threats to close the strategic Persian Gulf waterway were a “fantasy”.

During his visit to Kuwait this week, Vice Admiral Maurizio Gemignani said the international waterway could not be blocked.

About 40 percent of the world’s oil passes through the Strait of Hormuz.
