American’s friends like Saudia, UAE and OMAN are also worry if that block going to imposs by Iran.
Following days Iran has already started military drills in their own boundary but very close to international water. This was seen as an escalating step towards blockade.
Iran officials said that if West continously imposing sanctions , Iran will definately block this 97% oil route.
