Iran has no intention of blockading the Strait of Hormuz, the sea route through which about a fifth of the world’s oil is shipped, a senior Iranian diplomat said Friday, downplaying threats by others in Tehran.

The remarks by Ali Ahani, Iran’s ambassador to France, are in contrast with threats to close the Strait over the past six weeks that have come from legislators and some members of the country’s Revolutionary Guard.
Ahani’s remarks suggest the country’s highest authorities are not backing these threats, which could dampen oil prices that have recently risen on fears of supply disruptions.

Ahani said “we don’t have the intention to close the Strait of Hormuz…That’s our official position.”

He added “our interest demands the free circulation of vessels in the Strait of Hormuz.”
