British PM Theresa May to hold emergency meeting on seized tanker in Iran

@BBC
Prime Minister Theresa May will hold a meeting of Britain's emergencies committee today to discuss Iran's seizure of a UK-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said the meeting will discuss the maintenance of the security of shipping in the Persian Gulf as well as receive the latest s from ministers and officials.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt spoke to his French and German counterparts over the issue.

Both ministers agreed with the foreign secretary that safe passage for vessels through the Strait of Hormuz is a top priority for European nations while avoiding any possible escalation.


Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
