Monday, 9 July 2012

Seyed Mehdi Moussavinejad, one of the Majlis members who signed the bill, said that “In order to study the bill on the blockading of the Strait of Hormuz better and more precisely, the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary and a number of officials from the Foreign Ministry and the General Staff of the Armed Forces will be invited to the Majlis and their views and proposals will be used… The Majlis should make a comprehensive and insightful decision on the Strait of Hormuz and defend the rights of the Iranian nation without any reservations.” He said that the bill, which requires the government to close the Strait of Hormuz to tankers shipping oil to the supporters of sanctions against Iran will be submitted to the Majlis Presiding Board late July to be put on top of the agenda with double-urgency to undergo further discussion by all Majlis members.
