Khamenei’s Mouthpiece Threatens to Hijack South Korean Tankers

Following the latest international dispute between Greece and the Iranian regime concerning the seizure of oil tankers, the Kayhan newspaper whose editorial guidelines are directed by the Supreme Leader’s office called on the regime’s navy and the IRGC to hijack South Korean tankers to extort this country into releasing its frozen funds.

In a column that was published on May 27, Kayhan’s editor-in-chief Hossein Shariatmadari wrote: “Fortunately, the esteemed officials of our country have come to the conclusion that summoning foreign ambassadors and mere diplomatic protests will be in vain. Hence, they have seized two Greek tankers. A licit action based on the “right of retaliation” which is an inalienable right of our country. Under the 1958 Geneva Convention and the 1982 Jamaica Convention, which deal with the ‘legal system of international waterways and the right of passage of ships’, if Iran sees its national interests at stake, it has the right and can close down the Strait of Hormuz to all oil tankers and even ships carrying commercial goods and weapons of the countries that have violated the national and legal rights of our country.”

“It is now expected that the Islamic Republic of Iran shall block the Strait of Hormuz on tankers and vessels carrying South Korean commercial goods, and not to allow its vessels to cross the Strait as long as it has not paid its $7 billion debt to Iran, Shariatmadari added.
