"Iran will not give back the three British naval boats seized in the Shatt al-Arab and is putting them on display," the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Mirfaisal Baqerzadeh, described as a senior Chief Staff of Armed Forces official, as saying.
"For the same reasons we did not give back the American helicopters, we won't give back the aggressive British naval boats," Baqerzadeh said.
He was referring to US military helicopters which crashed and were abandoned during a failed 1980 attempt to rescue 52 hostages held at the US embassy in Tehran. The hostages were eventually released after being held for 444 days.
