TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Army's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced that the Navy is prepared to inspect the foreign vessels passing through Iran's territorial waters once required by the parliament.
"In case of approval by the Islamic Consultative Assembly, we will reciprocate any possible threat of inspection of Iranian cargo ships," Sayyari said in a meeting with parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Chairman Alaeddin Boroujerdi and Defense Commission members here on Monday.
The UN Security Council approved a sanctions resolution against Iran on June 9 which envisages inspection of Iranian vessels.
Also during the meeting, Boroujerdi reiterated that if any country embarks on inspecting Iranian vessels, the Navy will not allow its ships to pass through the country's territorial waters without inspection.>>>
