British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt was reported to have talks with his French and German counterpart on the arrest of tanker ship in the Gulf yesterday.

“The two ministers agree with the external secretary that the safe route for any vessel to sail in the Hormuz Strait is the country’s priority in Europe, to prevent the repeat of the same case.

“They also agree to keep in touch and work together to achieve this goal,” Hunt’s office said in a statement.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May will be presiding over a meeting of the British emergency committee today, to discuss the issue of Swedish-owned vessel Stena Impero.

Earlier, Iranian authorities seized oil tanker, Stena Impero and her 23 crew, while outside the port of Bandar Abbas, after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp arrested the tanker in the Hormuz Strait.

Meanwhile, Kuwait said the country was monitoring the situation in the Gulf region, following an Iranian crackdown on Britain’s tankers.

The Kuwaiti news agency (KUNA) reported that the country also emphasized that if the matter continues to occur, it will increase tension and threaten maritime security, thereby forcing international parties to control it.

Kuwait, therefore, urged all parties to try to curb the matter and respect international maritime law, to ensure maritime security in the region.
