Iran: Statement by the Spokesperson on the seizure of two Greek ships in the Persian Gulf

(Source: EEAS)

We follow with great concern the unacceptable seizure of two Greek ships by Iran in the Persian Gulf.

We immediately raised the seizure and expressed our strong concern with the Iranian authorities about these acts and call for speedy clarification, resolution and deescalation.

Freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce are basic principles the EU stands for.

We are in very close contact with the Greek authorities on the situation of the vessel ‘Pegas’ under Greek custody.
