No Place for Foreign Forces in Persian Gulf: IRGC Navy

The United States for its part, has maintained a fleet in the Gulf seeking to protect oil shipping lanes even as Iran has ratcheted up military "show of force" exercises of late.

Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri spoke to reporters this week about Iran's intelligence and the monitoring of "hostile forces" in the gulf, the Tasnim News Agency reported.

U.S. Naval Forces Central Command reiterated this commitment in a statement to Fox News on Monday: "The U.S. and our partners provide and promote security and stability in the region on a daily basis".

Tehran has suggested it could take military action in the Gulf to block other countries' oil exports in retaliation for USA sanctions meant to halt its sales of crude.

Recently Iran's president Hassan Rouhani's suggested that Gulf oil exports be blocked should its own exports be stopped.

Earlier this month, the top USA general in the Middle East said the US military remains "extraordinarily vigilant" about Iranian movements in the Persian Gulf after an Iranian naval exercise near the Strait of Hormuz.

Trump has previously said he was open to reaching a more comprehensive deal with Iran "that addresses the full range of the regime's malign activities, including its ballistic missile program and its support for terrorism".

According to Reuters, U.S. officials aim to economically isolate Iran and reduce its oil exports - one of the few regime-saving industries - to zero.

Tehran has full control of the Strait of Hormuz and shutting down the route would be the most direct way of blocking shipments, he said.

"All the carriers and military and nonmilitary ships will be controlled and there is full supervision over the Persian Gulf. The Strait is an worldwide waterway", Pompeo said in a Twitter post late Monday.

The US, as Pompeo added, will continue to collaborate with partners in ensuring the "freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce in global waterways". However, in separate remarks Revolutionary Guards Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari warned the enemies of Iran would not prevail.
