Britain said Iran seized two oil tankers in the Gulf on Friday (July 19) and told Tehran to return the vessels or face consequences in the latest confrontation to ratchet up tension along a vital international oil shipping route. New visuals of the incident have been released now by Iran's Revolutionary Guards. In an exclusive conversation with WION, the British High Commission to India has said that the UK has been deeply concerned over Iran's activities in the Persian Gulf. The High Commission said that UK ships have been advised to stay out of the Strait of Hormuz for an interim period.
