Germany and France Urge Iran to Immediately Release British Tanker Vessels

DETIK.com  Iranian authorities insist that they are investigating a British-flagged tanker which is claimed to have collided with a fishing boat in the Strait of Hormuz. This was conveyed after Britain strongly condemned the detention of its tanker by Iran.

British allies, such as Germany and France, began calling on Iran to immediately release the British-flagged tanker.

As reported by AFP on Saturday (07/20/2019), British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt said Iran's actions to hold the British-flagged tanker "showed alarming signs that Iran might choose dangerous illegal routes and destructive behavior".

The British cabinet minister, James Brokenshire, said the detention of the tanker was "truly intolerable" and "unacceptable". "We want this matter to be resolved diplomatically. Iran needs to release this ship as soon as possible," he stressed.

In a statement, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) confirmed it was detaining a tanker named Stena Impero for violating the 'national maritime rules' in the waters of the Strait of Hormuz

Britain previously said there were two tankers detained by Iran, but the owner of a second tanker named Mesdar said the ship had been ridden by armed Iranian military personnel before being allowed to leave. All the crew of the second tanker were 'safe and secure'.

The tanker, Stena Impero, which is still being held, is known to be taken to the Bandar Abbas port in Iran and anchored there. Authority at the port said the tanker was sailing towards Saudi Arabia on Friday (19/7) local time, when it collided with a fishing boat.

"The tanker collided with a fishing boat on its voyage, and according to applicable law, after an incident occurred it was necessary to investigate the cause," said the Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of the Province of Hormozgan, Allah-Morah Afifipoor.

"An investigation to find out the cause of the incident began today by experts," he added. 

Afifipoor said in a statement quoted by the Fars news agency that the tanker had "23 crew members and all of them were on board." The tanker crew consisted of 18 Indians, three Russians, one Latvian and one Filipino. The Philippine Ambassador to Iran, Fred Santos, had contacted the Iranian authorities to guarantee the safety of the Filipino crew on the ship.

In the latest statement, the German Foreign Ministry said the detention of the British-flagged tanker owned by the Swedish company 'further worsened the already tense situation'. A similar thing was expressed by the French Foreign Ministry. "This kind of action is hampering the deescaling efforts needed in the Gulf region," said a French statement.

The two countries both condemned the detention of Iran's Stena Impero tanker and underlined solidarity for Britain. "We call on Iran to immediately release the ship," said the German Foreign Ministry.

"We call on the Iranian authorities to immediately release the (British) ship and its crew, and to respect the principle of freedom of navigation in the Gulf region," said the French Foreign Ministry. (Nvc / nvl) (Novi Christiastuti - detikNews)
