Iran is calling for the freedom of navigation in the Strait of Hormuz, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told on Tuesday his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, during a phone conversation.
“We are insisting on [ensuring] security and freedom of navigation in the region and in the Strait of Hormuz. Dozens of ships are passing every day, while the Armed Forces are controlling the traffic in line with the rules,” Rouhani said, as quoted by his press service.
