Britain came forward to seize an Iranian oil tanker for the United States, but unexpectedly got into serious trouble. Britain is in a dilemma about whether to release Iranian oil tankers, and is very frightened when faced with the threat of Iranian seizure of oil tankers. What makes Britain even more embarrassed is that Britain’s proactive approach did not win the favor of the United States. According to public reports, Trump has attacked the United Kingdom one after another, and even called the British ambassador to the United States unwelcome. Facing the pressure of American soldiers, Iran did not choose to submit but chose to be extraordinarily tough, which embarrassed the United States. Britain took the initiative to seize the Iranian tanker for the United States, obviously putting itself on the gun, and it was natural to cause trouble.
According to a report by Bloomberg News on July 8th, the British giant tanker "British Tradition" carrying 1 million barrels of oil had an accident in the Persian Gulf. This was the second time the British "Pacific Voyager" tanker had an accident in the Persian Gulf. Accident. According to reports, the British oil tanker was preparing to transport 1 million barrels of oil from the Iraqi port of Basra to Western Europe, but was suddenly warned of an attack and was forced to make an emergency U-turn and chose to flee. Because the tanker was too large, there was no port along the coast that could accept this. A behemoth. According to reports, this huge ship was wandering on the sea and looked very embarrassed and embarrassed. It was later confirmed that the so-calledThe attack warnings are all vain.
The reason why British oil tankers are so panicked, like a bird of fright, is mainly because of Iran. A warning has been issued to retaliate by seizing a British oil tanker. However, although the Iranian side issued a warning, it did not implement it specifically, so the British oil tankers passing by here were worried about becoming victims. Although the British tankers have great concerns,It is the British that did not have any warships to escort here, because the UK does not have suitable warships to dispatch. In addition, U.S. warships operating near the Persian Gulf are also offshore Oman, far away from the Strait of Hormuz. Therefore, when the British oil tanker encountered an unexpected situation, the US and British warships were unable to come forward.
The United States often says that freedom of navigation means that Iran and Russia can control the freedom of navigation in the United States. If Iran does detain British tankers, it will be the heaviest blow to Britain. Therefore, it is completely understandable that the British tankers are nervous. The United States very much hopes that the situation in the Persian Gulf Strait will escalate and cause global oil prices to rise, but the United States itself does not want to be directly involved in it. The United States hopes that allies will come forward. Now Britain has taken over the hot potato and seized the Iranian oil tanker, in a very embarrassing situation. Therefore, it is very unwise for Britain to follow the United States and seize Iranian tankers for the United States. Another British supertanker had an accident. The sea was drifting and there was nowhere to go. Sanctions against Iran are in trouble! Welcome to discuss and exchange.
