Just to shut all those "Iran to close the straight" threads here ya go:
TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman said that closing the Strait of Hormuz is not on Iran's agenda, the conservative news
website, Tabnak, reported on Wednesday. "As Iran has announced it several times, the issue of closing the Strait of Hormuz is not on Iran's agenda
since Iran believes in upholding the stability and peace of the region," Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.
Mehmanparat's comment came after an Iranian lawmaker's remark on Tuesday that Iran would hold a war game in the Strait of Hormuz in the near future
for closing it.
And the statement everyone on ATS needs to see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the spokesman said that some people, including lawmakers, are not in the position of reflecting on the official stance of the country, adding that
they may have their own personal comments but the stance of Iran is announced through the official channel.
