In an interview Ambassador Hassan Danaie-Far insisted that Tehran, in response to any aggression, will close the Strait of Hormuz through which one third of the world’s traded oil regularly passes.

“What else (US President Barack) Mr. Obama can do?” Danaie-Far said through an Iranian embassy translator.

“The only remaining card on the table is war. Is it to their benefit? Is it to the benefit of the world? Is it to the benefit of the region?”

When asked if Tehran would try to close off the strait, Danaie-Far answered:

“If there is some movement and action from our enemies, including US, against us, as a part of natural reaction, that may happen. Everybody would be a loser in that case.”

Washington has warned Tehran that an attempt to close the strait would be viewed as a “red line”, or grounds for U.S. military action.
