Seizure Of British Ship: U.S. President Claims The Seizure As Correct News

U.S. President Donald Trump claimed the seizure of British ship proved his warnings about Iran correct and he will talk to the UK about seized tanker.

Speaking to newsmen at the White House, President Trump hailed a close alliance with the United Kingdom.

He noted the U.S. Has very few tankers going in because we are using a lot of our own energy but said the American presence in the region was still robust.

Earlier, U.S. National Security Council Spokesman Garrett Marquis in a statement, denounced Iran's seizure of a British vessel.

Marquis said, the U.S. Will continue to work with allies and partners to defend its security and interests.

The latest escalation comes more than a year after Washington unliterally withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement and began ratcheting up sanctions against Tehran.
