Zarif says Iran will act over 'maritime offences' in Gulf

Iran's foreign minister has said the country will no longer turn a blind eye to maritime "offenses" in the Gulf, a day after it seized an Iraqi oil tanker there that it accused of smuggling fuel.

Revolutionary Guards seized the tanker and its seven crew near Iran's Farsi Island north of the Strait of Hormuz, state media reported, in a show of power.

Zarif criticized U.S. sanctions imposed on him on Wednesday (July 31), saying Washington had closed the door to diplomacy over Iran's 2015 nuclear deal, which U.S. President Donald Trump exited last year.

Oil tanker traffic through Hormuz and other strategic waterways has become a focus for the standoff between Washington and Tehran, into which Britain has also been dragged.

Zarif accused Britain of "piracy" for seizing an Iranian tanker near Gibraltar for violating sanctions on Syria.
