In the dispute with Iran to set oil Tanker remains London hart and rejects according to the British foreign Minister, Dominic Raab exchange.
This is a from Iran set the British oil Tanker and a in Gibraltar held super tankers with Iranian oil. “There is no consideration,” said Raab of the BBC. Iran’s President Hassan Ruhani had previously proposed the exchange of the two ships.
the UK had, on 4. July, set in Gibraltar the Tanker “Grace1” with the explanatory statement, that he had violated Iranian oil to Syria on Board, in breach of EU sanctions. Iran denies this. 19. July, the Iranian revolutionary guards stopped in the Strait of Hormuz, the British oil Tanker “Stena Impero”. The reason given was that the ship has not complied with international rules of navigation, GPS System, switched off, and environmentally damaging materials on Board. Both sides spoke of “piracy.”
the UK had raised after the fixing of the “Stena Impero” the idea of a European sea mission in the Strait of Hormuz. The German industry for the Bundeswehr’s deployment in the Persian Gulf under the umbrella of a European Mission. The President of the Federal Association of German industry (BDI), Dieter Kempf, said the German press Agency: “A working commercial shipping is for the exporting nation, and the industrial country, Germany is of paramount importance.”
defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU), had not excluded a participation of the Bundeswehr in a European protection mission in principle.
The Left warned about a German participation in a possible military operation in the Persian Gulf. “This Region is a powder keg. The risk is huge,” said the party Chairman Katja Kipping on Monday in Berlin. “From the German side, there should be only one clear Signal: We will participate in any escalation, a use in this Region in any case.”
According to the view of Kipping the fuel crisis in the Strait of Hormuz and the conflict around the Iranian nuclear deal hang together “closely”. If such a use will first started, he could escalate even further. And in the end Germany would be threatened “to be part of a war with unpredictable consequences”. “Now it needs a sense of proportion. Now is the hour of diplomacy,” said Kipping.
The AfD’s foreign policy expert Armin-Paul Hampel warned of a rapid establishment of a EU-sea mission against Iran. While the AfD is in favour of Germany military shooter important sea lanes, if necessary, table. But, Hampel added: “those Who want to use military means of protection for the free shipping, but must also think of the consequences.” Each must be clear that in the case of a worsening of the crisis as an Ultima Ratio, military means could be used. The AfD Chairman Alexander Gauland had spoken out against it last week for the UK’s proposed Marine use.
