Britain’s Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Jeremy Hunt has said that the seizure of a British-flagged ship and one with the flag of Liberia in the Strait of Hormuz was unacceptable and called for freedom of navigation in the Gulf.

“I am very concerned about the Iranian authorities’ detention of two ships in the Strait of Hormuz,” Jeremy Hunt said.

“I will shortly attend a security meeting to review what we know and what we can do to ensure the rapid release of the two vessels – a British flagged vessel and one flying the flag of Liberia.

“The seizure of ships is unacceptable. It is necessary to maintain the freedom of navigation and the ability of all vessels to move safely and freely in the region,” Hunt said.
