The US came out against the recent provocations carried out by Iran’s navy. A statement issued by the White House on Thursday said that the intention of four Iranian vessels that approached a US warship in international waters in the Strait of Hormuz this week were not clear, but that such actions could escalate tensions.
“At this point, it’s not clear what the intentions of the Iranian ships were, but the behavior is not acceptable, given that this US ship was in international waters,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a news briefing. “These types of actions and incidents are concerning and they have the potential to unnecessarily escalate tensions.”
